The phase equilibria and thermodynamic properties of the Ca-Zn binary system were analyzed and a complete thermodynamic description of the system was obtained using a computerized optimization procedure. Based on the experimental data, eight intermetallic compounds were considered. A new interpretation of the decomposition of the phase CaZn3 is presented. Good agreement was obtained between the calculated results and the experimental data for the binary system.
