Succinonitrile-water (SCN-H 2O) system is a widely used transparent metallic alloy system due to its analog solidification behavior to metals. In the present work, Gibbs energy of pure succinonitrile was derived utilizing temperature as well as enthalpy of transformations, and temperature dependencies of heat capacity available in the literature. The phase diagram for the binary SCN-H 2O system was assessed via the CALPHAD approach using phase equilibrium data available in the literature. Self-consistent thermodynamic parameters were obtained. A good agreement between the experimental and calculated data for the phase diagram has been achieved. The present work contributes to the development of the thermodynamic database of the SCN-H 2O system that can be incorporated into thermodynamic and kinetic codes for computational simulations.
