A nearly complete evaluation of known binary alloy eutectic systems has been made with the exceptions of incomplete listing of Rare Earth Metals and of Refractory Metals. Seventy-seven eutectic systems are listed as unfavorable for production of useful whisker or aligned structures. Twenty-eight binary eutectic systems are listed as being possible sources for beneficially aligned structures. Some limitations are discussed. The relative value of using high pressure to increase yield quantities is indicated for specific systems. The high cost for high pressure yields does not appear warranted in any case, at least for sometime to come. Author
