We present a theoretical approach to derive the dc conductivity of warm dense matter (WDM) from x-ray Thomson scattering data. Predictions for the conductivity of aluminum at condensed matter densities are given within a wide temperature range (0.08 eV kBT < 80 eV). Strong correlation effects are taken into account by ionic structure factors. Screening and Pauli blocking are described via a pseudopotential. The results are compared with other theoretical models and simulations as well as with experimental measurements in the liquid metal regime and recent experiments in the WDM regime.
