A novel X-ray radiography method is used to measure chemical diffusion in a long-capillary in liquid Al95Ni5 at.-%. Molecular dynamics simulations provide interdiffusion coefficients and thermodynamic factors for the whole composition range in Al-Ni. The data are compared to literature data in Sb-Sn and Ag-Sn. The relation between interdiffusion coefficient and thermodynamic forces is discussed in the context of the Darken equation. In systems with common ordering tendency (Al-Ni, Sb-Sn) the thermodynamic factor is larger than one and enhances interdiffusion. In systems with common demixing tendency (Ag-Sn) the thermodynamic factor is smaller than one and reduces interdiffusion.
