High-pressure melting experiments in the Fe–S–C ternary and Fe–S–Si–C quaternary systems have been conducted in the range of 3.5–20 GPa and 920–1700 C in the multi-anvil press. The mutual solubility, melting relations, and crystallization sequences were systematically investigated with changes of pressure, temperature and bulk composition. Five starting materials of Fe(84.69 wt%)–C(4.35 wt%)–S(7.85 wt%), Fe(84.87 wt%)–C(2.08 wt%)–S(11.41 wt%), Fe(86.36 wt%)–C(0.96 wt%)– S(10.31 wt%), Fe(85.71… CONTINUE READING
