Abstract. In the present study the boundaries are outlined of the two-phase regions around the liquid crystalline phase in the Triton X-114 — water binary system. The phase behavior is studied as a function of the concentration of the detergent in the system and of the temperature. The phase diagram contains an eutectic point appearing as the peak with respect to the temperature of the liquid crystal domain existing there.
