A simple formalism is provided to relate the viscosity and the chemical diffusion coefficient of binary liquid alloys. Only under simplified considerations, it reduces to the form of Stokes-Einstein relation. The positive and negative deviations of the viscosity from the additive rule of mixing have been ascribed to the role of energetic and size effects.
