- n. Plural form of eutectic.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
A mixture with many different materials will form eutectics (and will melt) at a lower temperature.
As a matter of course, the same thing holds good for metallic eutectics.
We have already seen with salt eutectics that, given the curve of melting-points of a mixture in various proportions, we may predict the existence, composition, and melting-point of the eutectic alloy.
Hopefully, this liquid battery will be developed further possibly using lower melting eutectics.
