Xiaohua Lu, Ying Hu “Molecular Thermodynamics of Complex Systems"
Springer | 2008-12-12 | ISBN: 3540691146 | 274 pages | PDF
With the development of science and technology,more and more complex materials such as porous materials, ion liquid, liquid crystals, thin films and colloids etc. are being developed in laboratories. However, it is difficult to prepare these advanced materials and use them on a large scale without some experience.
Therefore, molecular thermodynamics, a method that laid emphasis on correlating and interpreting the thermodynamic properties of a variety of fluids in the past, has been recently employed to study the equilibrium properties of complex materials and establish thermodynamic models to analyze the evolution process of their components, micro structures and functions during the preparation process. In this volume, some important progress in this field, from fundamental aspects to practical applications, is reviewed.
