[en] A new method for calculating Infinite Dilute Activity Coefficients (γ"∞s) of binary liquid alloys has been developed. This method is basically computing γ"∞s from experimental thermodynamic integral free energy of mixing data using Complex formation model. The new method was first used to theoretically compute the γ"∞s of 10 binary alloys whose γ"∞s have been determined by experiments. The significant agreement between the computed values and the available experimental values served as impetus for applying the new method to 22 selected binary liquid alloys whose γ"∞s are either nonexistent or incomplete. In order to verify the reliability of the computed γ"∞s of the 22 selected alloys, we recomputed the γ"∞s using three other existing methods of computing or estimating γ"∞s and then used the γ"∞s obtained from each of the four methods (the new method inclusive) to compute thermodynamic activities of components of each of the binary systems. The computed activities were compared with available experimental activities. It is observed that the results from the method being proposed, in most of the selected alloys, showed better agreement with experimental activity data. Thus, the new method is an alternative and in certain instances, more reliable approach of computing γ"∞s of binary liquid alloys.
