The configurational entropy theory of glass formation is used to derive the composition dependence of the glass transition temperature (Tg) and of supercooled liquid transport properties for binary mixtures which obey the laws of regular solutions. The relations between expressions derived subject to specified approximations and known empirical equations are shown, and the parameters of the latter are thereby identified with defined measurable quantities. The predicted composition dependence of Tg is compared with experimental data from binary mixtures with satisfactory agreement.
