A simple statistical mechanical theory based on compound formation model (compound Aμ Bv formed by the preferential arrangement of A and B constituent atoms of the alloy AB, μA + νB ≒ Aμ Bv) has been used to investigate the phenomena of compound formation in NaCd liquid alloys through the study of concentration fluctuation in the long wavelength region [Scc(0)] and chemical short range order parameter (α1). The study explains the observed asymmetry successfully and suggest the existence of Cd2Na complex in the melt. The tendency of compound has been found to be weak. A tendency of inversion from segregation to order although very small, has been observed, in NaCd liquid alloys.
