    The experimental and computational data on rhodium binary alloys is sparse despite its importance in numerous applications, especially as an alloying agent in catalytic materials. Half of the Rh-transition metal systems (14 out of 28) are reported to be phase separating or are lacking experimental data. Comprehensive high-throughput first-principles calculations predict stable ordered structures in 9 of those 14 binary systems. They also predict a few unreported compounds in the known compound-forming systems. These results indicate the need for an extensive revision of our current understanding of Rh alloys through a combination of theoretical predictions and experimental validations.
