Employing electrochemical cells with the solid zirconia electrolyte: Cu2O,CuO /O2- / air; Cu2In2O5, In2O3,Cu2O / O2-/ air; In,In2O3 /O2-/ Ni, NiO. Gibbs free energy of formation of solid Cu2In2O5 phase as well as that for In2O3 and CuO oxides was determined in the temperature range from 973 K to 1372 K. The results obtained in this study were used to derive Gibbs free energy change of the reaction of formation of the ternary compound from respective oxides: 2CuO + In2O3 = Cu2In2O5; which is equal to: ∆G_(f,〖Cu〗_2 〖In〗_2 O_5)^0=33905-41.50T (±3600) “J ” 〖mol〗^(-1). Standard enthalpy of formation from elements ∆H_(f,298)^0 and standard enthalpy ∆S_298^0 derived for Cu2In2O5 phase by Second Law sigma plot are -1211 (±15) kJ mol-1 and 493.20 (±10) J (K-1 mol-1). Oxygen potential diagrams for the Cu–In–O system are also given at two temperatures.
