Departures from the Nernst-Einstein equation for a variety of pure molten salts are correlated by means of "glass transition-based" corresponding temperatures suggested by a recent free volume model of transport in molten salts. Coupled with molar volume data, these correlations are consistent with the view that mutual ionic interference, rather than paired vacancy diffusion, causes the breakdown of the Nernst-Einstein equation in these liquids.
