ABSTRACT: The Co–Sn system is an important subsystem for Sn-based anode materials of lithium-ion batteries. Experimental results on the physical–chemical properties of this system in the liquid state, however, are rather sparse. In this work, the atomic structure and structure-sensitive thermophysical properties (viscosity, electrical resistivity, and thermoelectric power) of liquid Co–Sn alloys were investigated in a wide temperature range with special attention to the melting-solidification region. The obtained experimental results were combined with differential thermal analysis (DTA) data in order to verify the liquidus curve in the Sn-rich part of the Co–Sn phase diagram.
