Abstract / Full Text

Specific conductivity of molten LiCl–KF–ZrF4 mixtures was measured for the first time by the reference capillary method using an ac bridge. In the ternary salt systems, the study was performed at a molarfraction ratio between the alkali metal halides of 1: 3, 1: 1, and 3: 1. The temperature dependences of specific conductivity were determined for all melt compositions. The calculated molar conductivities λ of studied LiCl–KF–ZrF4 ternary melts and their relative deviations from the ideal values enable us to infer the processes that proceed during mixing of the melt components.
