Abstract

Cadmium is a highly reactive metal. At the time of formation of binary alloys in liquid
phase it often forms complexes. In the present work we have considered two such complex
forming binary liquid alloys of cadmium e.g. Cd-Na and Cd-Mg. The former alloy shows
anomaly in its thermodynamic properties of mixing. On the other hand, the alloying
behavior of the latter one is symmetric around the equi-atomic composition. We have
computed their entropy of mixing (SM) for different concentrations of the ingredients by
using the quasi-lattice chemical model. The results explain the observed anomaly as well as
symmetry in SM of the present alloys.
