The solid - liquid phase equilibria for binary mixture of citric acid with tartaric acid were measured using differential scanning calorimetry. The phase diagram showed the existence a simple eutectic behavior. The thermal properties of this system as heat of mixing, entropy of fusion and excess thermodynamic functions were computed using enthalpy of fusion values. The composition of eutectic was determined using a Tammann diagram. <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
