The glass-forming composition region of the CaCl2-H2O-DMSO system has been established, and the glass transition temperatures of the mixtures have been determined as a function of the CaCl2 content at a constant DMSO mole fraction in the mixed solvent. The dependence of the glass transition temperature on the CaCl2 mole fraction at a constant mole fraction of DMSO in the mixed solvent can be described by a linear relationship.
