Solubility of Al, Ti, Mo and W in fcc Co was determined by X-ray diffraction and micro-probe analysis. It was observed that the solubility of these elements was reduced considerably near and below the Curie temperature. The reduction was conspicuous for the alloying elements which reduced the Curie temperature effectively. These results were similar to those found in bcc Fe alloys. Thermodynamic analysis was performed on the solubility data, taking into account the effect of magnetic transition on the free energy of fcc Co-X solid solution.
