Dynamic structures of liquid Te70Se30 and Te50Se50 were investigated by inelastic neutron scattering experiments in the semiconductor-to-metal transition range. The bond-stretching modes for the both liquid mixtures were found to clearly soften when the transition occurs. We discuss the change of static and dynamic structures that accompany the transition.
