Abstract

Viscosity and electrical conductivity of liquid Sn–Ti and Sn–Zr alloys on the Sn-rich side were investigated in a wide temperature range above the melting temperature. It was shown that admixtures of Ti and Zr considerably increased the viscosity of liquid Sn. The electrical conductivity of the melts decreased with an increase of the Ti and Zr content. The conductivity results are interpreted in the context of the s–d hybridization model.
