An energetics database of binary magnesium alloys has been developed from first-principles calculations. The systems investigated include Mg-As, -Ba, -Ca, -Cd, -Cu, -Dy, -Ga, -Ge, -La, -Lu, -Ni, -Pb, -Sb, -Si, -Sn and -Y. The lattice parameters and the enthalpies of formation of binary compounds in these systems are presented and compared with available experimental data.
