Thermal diffusion data have been obtained on a series of mixtures of hydrogen plus hydrocarbons. The results indicate that ``collision diameter'' for these unlike molecules is considerably smaller than the mean collision diameter of the pure compounds. This is consistent with the high critical pressure of such mixtures.
