The temperature and enthalpy of the phase transition and fusion of EuC12 were determined and found to be 1014 K, 11.5 kJ mol-and 1125 K, 18.7 kJ mol-1 , respectively. Addition ally, the heat capacity of solid EuC12 was measured by Differential Scanning Calorimetry in the temperature range 306 -1085 K. The results were fitted to the linear equation C^ m = (68.27 + 0.0255 T/K) J m ol-1 K-1 in the temperature range 306 -900 K. Due to discrepancies in the liter ature on the temperature of fusion of EuC12, the determination of the NaCl-EuCl2 phase diagram was repeated. It consists of a simple eutectic equilibrium at Tem = 847 K with x(EuCl2) = 0.49.
