A thermodynamic calculation of the Al-Mn binary system that takes into account recent experimental results and includes five intermetallic compounds and all the solid-solution phases is presented. The Gibbs energy of the body-centered cubic (bcc) phase has been described on the basis of the two-sublattice model that includes the second-order A2/B2 ordering reaction as well. A consistent set of optimized thermodynamic parameters has been arrived at for describing the Gibbs energy of each phase in this system leading to a better fit between calculation and experiments.
