Isothermal sections of the phase diagrams for the systems Ln–Pd–O (Ln=Dy, Ho) at 1223 K have been established by isothermal equilibration of samples at high temperature, and phase identification after quenching by optical and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), and X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD). The binary oxide PdO was not stable at 1223 K. The oxide phase, $Ln_2O_3$ was stable along the binary Ln–O. Only one ternary oxide $Ln_2Pd_2O_5$ was identified in the two systems under investigation. Liquid alloys, the six intermetallic compounds $(Ln_3Pd_2, LnPd, Ln_3Pd_4, Ln_2Pd_3, Ln_1_0Pd_2_1 and LnPd_3)$ and Pd-rich solid solution were found to be in equilibrium with $Ln_2O_3$.
