Triangulation of the quaternary Ag–Cd–Sn–S system in the Ag2SnS3–SnS–Sn2S3–CdS
part below T = 600 K was
performed using X-ray diffraction method. The spatial position of the determined four-phase regions regarding the figurative point of silver was used to write forming chemical reactions. The
forming reactions were performed by applying electrochemical cells (ECCs):
(–) C | Ag | Ag2GeS3 glass | Ag2CdSn3S8,
SnS, Sn2S3, CdS | C (+)
and (–) C | Ag | Ag2GeS3 glass | Ag2CdSnS4, SnS, Ag2CdSn3S8,
CdS | C (+), where C is graphite and
Ag2GeS3 glass is the fast purely Ag+ ions
conducting electrolyte. The linear dependencies of the EMF of the ECCs on
temperature in the range T = (462–500) K
were used to calculate the standard thermodynamic values of the Ag2CdSn3S8 and Ag2CdSnS4
phases for the first time.
