Thermodynamic properties of ternary compounds, cuprous and cupric chromites ($CuCro_2$ , $CuCr_2$ $o_4$ ), and oxygen potentials corresponding to three three-phase regions in the $Cu-Cr-o$ system have been measured in the temperature range 900 to 1350 K using a solid state galvanic cell incorporating calcia-stabilized zirconia. Cuprous chromite was found to be nearly stoichiometric. The compositions of non-stoichiometric cupric chromite saturated with $Cuo$ and $Cr_2o_3$ have been determined using electron microprobe and energy dispersive X-ray analysis. The results of this study resolve discrepancies in Gibbs" energies of cuprous and cupric chromites reported in the literature. A ternary phase diagram for the $Cu-Cr-o$ system at 1150 K and phase relations in air for the $Cu_2o$ - $Cuo$ - $Cr_2o_3$ system as a function of temperature have been derived based on the new thermodynamic data. The phase diagram given in the literature is found to be inaccurate.
