The modeling of hydrogen solubility in multicomponent Al-(Li, Mg, Cu, and Si) liquid phase has been performed with a thermodynamic approach using the modified quasichemical model with the pair approximation (MQMPA). All hydrogen solubility data available in literature was assessed critically to obtain the binary parameters of the MQMPA model for the Al-H, Li-H, Mg-H, Cu-H, Zn-H, and Si-H melts. For the Li-H system, a new thermodynamic description of the stable solid lithium hydride was determined based on the c found in literature. The thermodynamic model for the Al-Li system also was reassessed in this work to take into account the short-range ordering observed for this system. Built-in interpolation techniques allow the model to estimate the thermodynamic properties of the multicomponent liquid solution from the liquid model parameters of the lower order subsystems. A comparison of the calculated hydrogen solubility performed at various equilibrium conditions of temperature, pressure, and composition with the available experimental data found in the literature is presented in this work, as well as a comparison with some results from previous modeling.
