Phase relations in the system CaO-SrO-PbO-O-2 at 1100 K have been determined by equilibrating samples with different compositions in air, oxygen, or evacuated ampoules for 7 days and characterizing quenched specimens by optical and scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive analysis of x-rays (EDX), and x-ray diffraction (XRD). There is a solid-state miscibility gap in the pseudo-binary system CaO-SrO, and continuous solid solubility between Ca2PbO4 and Sr2PbO4 at 1100 K. Substitution of Ca for Sr occurs only to a limited extent (similar to 2 mol.%) in SrPbO3. The calcium-rich solid solutions (Ca1-ySry)(2)PbO4 characterized by y less than or equal to 0.255 are in equilibrium with PbO in air; compositions with y greater than or equal to 0.255 coexist with (Ca1-zSrz)PbO3. There is a three-phase region involving the two monoxide solid solutions (Ca1-xSrx)O on either side of the miscibility gap with x = 0.24 and 0.71 and (Ca1-ySry)(2)PbO4 with y = 0.96. Accurately determined are the locations of tie-lines between the solid solutions. Attainment of equilibrium was checked by the conventional tie-line rotation technique. The excess Gibbs energy of mixing of the solid solution with orthorhombic structure is obtained by an analysis of tie-line data; for the mixing of one mole of Ca and Sr represented by (Ca1-ySry)Pb0.5O2, Delta G(E) = y(1 - y) [15,840 - 2950 y] J/mol. The thermodynamic properties suggest the onset of immiscibility in this solid solution below 884 (+/-5) K. The miscibility gap is asymmetric with a critical composition at y = 0.43 (+/-0.02), Inside the triangle (Ca1-ySry)Pb0.5O2 - (Ca1-zSrz)PbO3 - PbO, a small liquid-phase region is present close to the PbO corner, surrounded by three two-phase fields. Each corner of the approximately triangular liquid-phase region is associated with a three-phase field
