An investigation has been made concerning the solubility of nitrogen in liquid binary alloys (Ni-V and Ni-Ta) and ternary alloys (Ni-Cr-V and Ni-Cr-Ta) by sampling method. The experiments were carried out in the temperature range from 1773 K to 1873 K and under the nitrogen partial pressure up to 1.0 bar. A technique involving induction melting and a rapid quench device has been used in this study. It has been found that Sieverts’ law successfully describes the nitrogen dissolution in all these liquid alloys up to 1.0 bar of nitrogen gas partial pressure. The additions of vanadium, tantalum and chromium significantly increase the nitrogen solubility, especially vanadium-alloying addition. Furthermore, we have determined the interaction parameters, enthalpies and entropies of nitrogen dissolution in these liquid alloys.
