CHAPTER 2

Amalgam Solubility

A semiquantitative model of the solubility of metals in mercury is derived and deviations from theory are explained. Correlations between solubility and the physical properties of the metal dissolved in it are made and plotted in graphical form. Tables of the solubility of metals in mercury, solubility as a function of temperature (–35 to 700 °C) and predicted solubility of metals in mercury are given.
