Abstract

The large asymmetry observed in the properties of mixing of CdNa liquid alloys is discussed on the basis of a simple theory based on the complex formation model. The results for long wavelength concentration-concentration fluctuations, Scc(0), number-number fluctuations, SNN(0) and number-concentration fluctuations, SNc(0) are presented as a function of concentration. This has been further used to obtain a chemical short-range order parameter ( alpha 1). Scc(0) and alpha 1 suggest that the segregation-order transformation occurs in the CdNa melt at around 60 at.% of Cd.
