The book series authored by MSIT provide reliable and comprehensive descriptions of materials constitution. They are based on critical intellectual evaluations of all data available at the time and it critically weights the different findings.

The handbook series proceeds by categories, such as Ag-X-Y or Mg-X-Y,  which - to the best of our knowledge - cover all systems which have had the attention of experimentalists. To critically evaluate the estimated 50.000 publications on ternary phase diagrams is a truly international challenge and the evaluation program always has been understood this way.
At present 18 volumes of this series were published with the last three volumes being topical monographs on Mg-X-Y systems.


  • Critical Evaluations
    The complete literature for each ternary system was critically evaluated by specialists before diagrams and data are included in the series. All articles were peer-reviewed.
  • Comprehensive
    Ternary Alloys proceeds category-wise and covers comprehensively all ternary system ever investigated.
  • Uniform Structure
    Alphabetical arrangement by element symbols and uniform structure of all chapters allow easy access to the data.
