The liquids temperatures have been measured for the system Ca(NO3)2-dimethyl sulphoxide-H2O over a concentration range of 0-28 mol% Ca(NO3)2 and 0-100 mol% dimethyl sulphoxide. Comparison is made between the aqueous and the nonaqueous system, and the supercooling ability of both systems is discussed.
