The phase diagram of the KCN-KI binary system was measured and the published phase diagrams of the KCN-NaCN, NaI-KI and NaCN-NaI systems were verified and completed. The systems form solid solutions with minima on the liquidus and solidus curves. The solid solutions in the KCN-KI system probably have a high segregation temperature, close to the solidus curve. For the four binary systems the experimental points were fitted with liquidus and solidus curves either by applying smoothing spline functions or by using two different models. The results obtained are discussed.
