    Abstract:
    Dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO) is a widely used cryoprotective agent, and the primary ice phase field in the H2O-NaCl-DMSO system has been determined including the extension into this system of the lines of twofold saturation from the ice-NaCl.2H2O and the ice-DMSO.3H2O binary eutectics. Liquidus surface data are presented for isoplethal sections taken through the ternary system along composition lines defined by weight ratios of DMSO to NaCl of 1/5, 1/2 and 9. Liquidus surface data obtained from an additional thirteen isoplethal sections are used to construct the complete isothermal projections of the primary ice phase field along 10°C contours. The distribution and occurrence of glassy phases in this ternary system are also discussed
