Although individual solubilities of thorium bismuthides and most lanthanide bismuthides are known, few data are available on their mutual solubilities or the interractions of thorium, bismuth, and the lanthanides. For the study, the system was~ contained in an argon atmosphere in a molybdenum crucible. The components of the system interracted to form solid compounds;2' 20 Berlin, B.
