The thermodynamic, structural, surface and transport properties of In-Tl binary liquid alloy are studied on the basis of theoretical analysis using the regular solution model at different temperatures. The properties of the alloy at 723 K have been computed by estimating the best fit value of order energy parameter (ω) in the entire range of concentration to match their observed and theoretical values. The values of order energy parameter at different temperatures have been calculated using the value of order energy parameter at 723 K which played key role to study different properties of the alloy using optimization method. The theoretical analysis gives the positive energy parameter (ω), which is found to be temperature dependent.
