Problems with the Ni-P equilibrium phase diagram
Hello, I am a engineering student and I am working in my thesis work about electroless nickel plating. I have a lot of Ni-P phase diagrams, but neither of them shows the different structures
(amorphous, semicrystalline and crystalline) produced by the P content.
I will be very grateful if somebody tell me where I can obtain a complete Ni-P phase diagram.

The phase diagram was published in:
"The Metallurgical Structure of Electroless Nickel Deposits: Effect on the Coating Properties", Plating and Surface Finishing, Vol. 83, No. 11 (1996) p. 65-69.
It was also reproduced in NACE International's report NACE 6a287, "Electroless Nickel Coatings".

Dear Mr Duncan,
I have the Ni-P phase diagram reproduced in NACE International's report No. 6A287, "Electroless Nickel Coatings".The problem is that it is not a coherent phase diagram. Its transformations lines do not respect the phase transformation rules. I think that it is only an schematic phase diagram, but I need a full diagram.
