Molecular dynamics simulations of molten TlCl are performed at 7 temperatures between 800 and 2600 K. The self-exchange velocity of neighbouring unlike ions divided by the molar volume, a quantity corresponding to the specific conductivity, is found to have a maximum as a function of temperature. The reason for the existence of the maximum is discussed
