A three-dimensional diagram of the structural states in the Cu-Pd-Pt system is formulated using literature data, by geometric construction of multicomponent phase diagrams on the basis of topological principles. Regions of relatively unstable (pretransition) long-period structural-phase states containing nanostructural elements are present in the resulting diagram, in temperature-composition space. The prediction of promising nanostructural functional materials is considered.
