Title: A systematic study of segregation for Zn{sub x}Bi{sub 1−x} liquid binary alloys

We have investigated the segregating properties of Zn{sub x}Bi{sub 1−x} liquid binary alloys through the thermodynamic route that involves both energy of mixing and entropy of mixing. The perturbation approach is used for effective numerical calculations. Results of our calculations agree well with corresponding experimental data for energy and entropy of mixing in the mixed state. The final prediction of segregating properties such as critical concentration and critical temperature also matches reasonably well with experimental data. Most importantly, both energy of mixing and entropy of mixing have produced almost same values for critical concentration and critical temperature of segregation and thus confirm the reliability of the present approach.
