Featured article in the Journal of chemical physics on confined fluids

In our recent paper in the Journal of Chemical Physics entitled “Equation of state for confined fluids“, we present a consistent thermodynamic framework for calculating the thermodynamic properties of confined fluids. Fluids confined in small volumes behave differently than fluids in bulk ...

New paper on thermodynamic perturbation theory for short-ranged fluids

The paper entitled Perturbation theories for fluids with short-ranged attractive forces: A case study of the Lennard-Jones spline fluid has been published in the Journal of Chemical Physics. It is generally not straightforward to apply molecular-thermodynamic theories to fluids with short-ranged attractive forces between ...
