The associated model for binary systems has been modified to include volume effects and excess entropy arising from preferential interactions between the associate and the free atoms or between the free atoms. Equations for thermo-dynamic mixing functions have been derived. An optimizat-ion procedure using a modified conjugate gradient method has been used to evaluate the enthalpy and entropy inter-action energies, the free energy of dissociation of the complex, its temperature dependance and the size of the associate. An expression for the concentration—concen-tration structure factor [Scc (0)] has been deduced from the modified associated solution model. The analysis has been applied to the thermodynamic mixing functions of liquid Ga-Te alloys at 1120 K, believed to contain Ga2Te3 associates. It is observed that the modified associated solution model incorporating volume effects and terms for the temperature dependance of interaction energies, desc-ribes the thermodynamic properties of Ga-Te system satis-factorily.
