Abstract: The liquid alloys, LiNa and KPb are strongly phase separating (ps) and compound forming (cf) alloys respectively and are known to have opposite ordering properties. The Bhatia-Thornton (BT) static structure factors are important indicators of the ordering properties and can best be understood in terms of ordering potential obtained from neutral pseudo atom method. In this paper, it is investigated how this difference in static structural behaviour could influence the dynamical property like self and mutual diffusion coefficients as a function of concentration of the lighter component. The method of Helfand’s linear trajectory principle has been used in the calculation and this gives results comparable with recent calculations based on VACF total memory function formalism. Both the methods yield D versus 1/T curve almost linear similar to what is found for pure liquid metals.
