Values of the enthalpy of niobium carbides of the compositions NbC0.99, NbC0.91, NbC0.86, NbC0.75 and zirconium carbides of the compositions ZrC0.99, ZrC0.76, ZrC0.69 have been determined with an accuracy of l.l% by the mixing method. Equations for the temperature dependence of the enthalpy and specific heat have been calculated for the whole temperature range investigated from the experimental results.
