Eutectic Point

Science / Chemistry / Eutectic Point: The composition and the melting point of a eutectic mixture. For example, the eutectic point of a mixture of nacl and water occurs at 23.3% nacl (by mass) and -21.1°C. That means that the lowest possible temperature at which a liquid nacl solution can exist is -21.1°C; below the eutectic point the solution will freeze into a mixture of ice and salt crystals.
