        X-ray photographs at temperatures up to 1,100 show no 2d transformation of Co.  On heating with illuminating gas up to 230-270 a mixed crystal of variable composition is formed, which is unstable at room temperature.  At 500-800 stable Co3C is formed, analogous to Fe3C.  Its unit cell dimensions are a=4.52, b=5.08, c=6.73 .  Heating with benine and CO also produces Co3C.
