In order to clarify the viscoelastic properties of ZnCI2-MCI (M: Na, K) binary melts, hypersonic velocities have been measured in the temperature ranges covering about 150K above the liquidus temperatures of the melts over the composition range of 0 to 50mol% MCI by means of the Brillouin scattering method. Absorption coefficients of ultrasound were measured for molten ZnCI2 at the frequency range of 5-55 MHz. the hypersonic velocity of ZnCI2 decreases linearly with increasing temperature at the high and the low temperature regions, but at the intermediate temperature region, shows a curvilinear temperature dependence, indicating dispersion of sound propagation.
