Abstract : An X-ray investigation of the Pd-P system was initiated. Preliminary results indicated the apparent existence of at least 4 intermediate phases in the range of 0 to 25 at-%P. The existence of a phase near the composition Pd3P was confirmed. The homogeneity range determined from alloys quenched from 740 C extended from about Pd3P.75 to Pd3P1. The crystal structure was determined by examination of single-crystals selected from an alloy with the approximate composition PdeP.95. The following structural data for PdeP.95 were obtained: a equal to 5.947, b equal to 7.451, c equal to 5.170, and U eqaul to 229.1 angstroms.
