The composition of Pt-Rh alloys that co-exist with $Rh_2O_3$ in air have been identified by experiment at 1273 K. The isothermal sections of the phase diagram for the ternary system Pt-Rh-O at 973 K and 1273 K have been computed based on experimentally determined phase relations and recent thermodynamic measurements on $Pt_{1-x}Rh_x$ alloys and Rh2O3. The composition dependence of the oxygen partial pressure for the oxidation of $Pt_{1-x}Rh_x$ alloys at different temperatures, and temperature for the oxidation of the alloys in air are computed. The diagrams provide quantitative information for optimization of the composition of $Pt_{1-x}Rh_x$ alloys for high temperature application in oxidizing atmospheres.
