Densities of molten AgBr-AX (A = Li, Na, K, Rb, Cs; X = Br or Cl), AgBr-AgCl, KBr-NaBr, KBr-CsBr, KCl-KBr, and KCl-CsBr mixtures have been measured at 0.5 mole fraction using the method of Archimedean displacement. The excess volumes of mixing are all positive, except for the AgBr-LiBr system. Attempts to relate the excess volumes of the binary AgBr-ABr systems to the second order conformal solution theory of Reiss, Katz, and Kleppa are unsuccessful, since V E is large even when the diameter difference parameter, δ 12 , is close to zero. However, the excess volumes of the reciprocal AgBr-ACl systems at 0.5 mole fraction are found, within experimental error, to have a linear dependence on δ 12 . The positive deviations from conformal solution theory which occur for the alkali halide mixtures have been interpreted in terms of non-Coulombic polarisation and van der Waals interactions.
