The nucleation kinetics of a binary mixture is studied using a Gibbs free energy function that we have recently used to obtain a range of generic phase diagrams when liquid mixtures are cooled to solid state. This allows us to compute analytically all the quantities related to the free energy barrier that occur in the nucleation kinetic equation. This equation is solved using the general procedure due to Langer. The variation of the nucleation rate and other related quantities are calculated as functions of undercooling and composition for a representative phase diagram.
