Newport, Robert J., Dupree, B.C., Enderby, J.E., Howe, R.A. (1981) The Resistivity And Thermoelectric-Power Of Liquid Ag-Pd Alloys. Journal of Physics F: Metal Physics, 11 (12). pp. 2539-2548. ISSN 0305-4608. (doi:10.1088/0305-4608/11/12/007) (KAR id:15934)


The resistivity (?) and the thermoelectric power (S) have been measured as functions of concentration and temperature for the liquid alloy system Ag-Pd. Comparison is made between the experimental results and the theoretical predictions of a nearly free electron model adapted for liquid transition metals. It is concluded that such a theory is unable to reproduce the gross features of the concentration dependence of ? and S even when concentration-dependent effective valencies are introduced. The close similarity between the concentration dependence of the resistivity and the thermoelectric power of solid Ag-Pd alloys at high temperatures and that of the liquid alloys lends support to the alternative s-d scattering model proposed by Mott.
