Successfully used recently for liquid Na and K the approach combined the linear trajectory approximation with the square-well model in the semi-analytical representation of the mean spherical approximation to calculate the self-diffusion coefficients is applied here to liquid Li and Rb. As well as earlier for Na and K, the results obtained are found to be in reasonable agreement with the available experimental data and confirm previous conclusion that the square-well model within the mean spherical approximation is quite useful for description of diffusion properties in liquid alkali metals.
