The solubility of anhydrous aluminum chloride in solutions of titanium tetrachloride and vanadium tetrachloride was determined as part of a research project by the Bureau of Mines to make a homogeneous alloy sponge of titanium, vanadium, and aluminum. Solubility curves were established using an autoclave at 75 deg, 100 deg, 125 deg, and 150 deg C. The solubility of AlCl3 in TiCl4 is 0.2 wt pct at 75 deg C; it increases to 18.3 wt pct at 150 deg C. The data concur with data from earlier researchers of this binary system for 75 deg to 125 deg C. For the VCl4-AlCl3 binary system the solubility of AlCl3 is 0.1 wt pct at 75 deg C, increasing to 1.6 wt pct at 150 deg C. For the TiCl4-AlCl3-VCl4 ternary system the solubility of AlCl3 decreases from the values found with a pure TiCl4-AlCl3 system to the lower values found with a pure VCl4-AlCl3 system at the respective temperatures.
