critical solution point

Synonym: consolute point
The point, with coordinates critical solution temperatures and critical composition, on a temperature-composition phase diagram at which the distinction between co-existent phases vanishes. In solid-solid, solid-liquid and liquid-liquid systems both upper and lower critical solution temperatures and corresponding critical solution compositions can occur. Synonymous with consolute point.
