Chemical theory is used to represent both positive and negative deviations from Raoult's law in compound-forming liquid metal mixtures. The Ideal Chemical Theory (ICT) and Simplified Chemical Physical Theory (SCPT) models are presented that express the Gibbs energy of mixing as a function of temperature and bulk composition. The ICT model assumes compounds and monomers for an ideal liquid mixture. The SCPT model assumes that physical interactions are based on the bulk solution composition. Analytical expressions for mixture enthalpy, heat capacity, and Darken Stability Function are used and expressed in terms of the model parameters.
