A statistical solution model is introduced to explain the thermodynamic behaviour of oxygen in liquid binary metallic solvents. The model permits the prediction of thermodynamic data of oxygen in the whole concentration range of homogeneous alloy melts only from the properties of the limiting binary systems. The approach is capable to evaluate the self interaction parameter and therefore to describe the thermodynamics of oxygen not only in its dilute but also in higher concentration range up to saturation. By means of emf-measurements and quenching experiments the activities and solubilities of oxygen in the liquid systems Cu-O-Bi, Cu-O-Pb, Bi-O-Pb, Bi-O-Sb and Pb-O-Sb were determined. The theoretical approach is checked by the results.
