Although important for catalytic applications, a phase diagram for the ternary system Ce-Rh-O is not found in the literature. Phase diagrams of most Ln-Rh-O systems show LnRhO 3 with orthorhombic perovskite structure as the lone stable ternary oxide. Based on systematic trends in experimentally determined thermodynamic properties of eleven LnRhO 3 compounds, the Gibbs energy of formation of CeRhO 3 is evaluated as a function of temperature. For the reaction, 1/2 Ce 2 O 3 (A-rare earth) + 1/2 Rh 2 O 3 (ortho) � CeRhO 3 , �G°/J mol �1 = �69,336 + 5.26(T / K). The estimated data for CeRhO 3 along with evaluated data for the binary Ce-Rh and data for binary oxides from the literature are used to compute the phase diagram for the system Ce-Rh-O at high temperature. Because of the significantly higher stability of CeO 2-x compared to Ce 2 O 3 , the compound CeRhO 3 is found to be unstable. A section of the phase diagram and an oxygen potential � composition diagram for the system Ce-Rh-O at 1200 K are computed from thermodynamic data. © 2019 Elsevier Ltd
