- Systematic and precise measurements of electrical conductivities of aqueous solutions of cadmium chloride were performed in the 2 × 10–⁵ - 1 × 10–² mol·dm–³ concentration range, from 278.15 to 313.15 K. Determined conductances were interpreted in terms of molecular model which includes a mixture of two 1:1 and 2:1 electrolytes. The molar limiting conductances of λ⁰(CdCl⁺, T) and λ⁰(1/2Cd²⁺, T), the equilibrium constants of CdCl⁺ formation K(T) and the corresponding standard thermodynamic functions were evaluated using the Quint-Viallard conductivity equations, the Debye–Hückel equations for activity coefficients and the mass-action equation. An excellent agreement between calculated and experimental conductivities was reached.
