## Abstract

Electromotive force measurements have been completed on formation cells of the type:
A(1)/AX_2(1) + MX(1)/C, X_2(g)
where AX_2 is a molten divalent metal halide and MX a molten alkali metal halide. The following systems have been investigated:
binary; PbBr_2-MBr (M = K, Rb, Cs), PbCl_2-CsCl
ternary; PbCl_2-CsCl-MCl (M = Li, Na, K, Rb)
reciprocal; CdX_2-NaY (X = Br or Cl, Y = Cl or Br)
The thermodynamic properties of the components have been discussed in terms of complex ion formation, association of the standard state (the pure divalent metal halide, AX_2) and the influence of the alkali metal ion, M^+, on the stability of the complex ions.
Activity models have been postulated to explain the deviations of the activity of AX_2 from the ideal Temkin activity.
