Theory of Molecular Fluids: Volume 2: Applications

Christopher G. Gray, Keith E. Gubbins, and Christopher G. Joslin

Abstract

Existing texts on the theory of liquids treat only simple, spherical molecules. However, nearly all fluids of practical interest are composed of non-spherical molecules that are often dipolar or exhibit other kinds of electrostatic forces. This book describes the statistical mechanical theory of fluids of non-spherical molecules at equilibrium, and its application to the calculation of physical properties, and is a sequel to Theory of Molecular Fluids: Vol. 1: Fundamentals by C.G. Gray and K.E. Gubbins. The emphasis is on the new and diverse phenomena that arise due to the non-spherical nature ... More

Keywords: liquids, statistical mechanics, fluids, non-spherical molecules, thermodynamic properties, mixtures, structure factor, dielectric properties, spectroscopic properties, molecular simulation
