This model is characterized by a index n which tunes the repulsive penetrability of the potential. This family of potentials can represent the effective interactions for a large number of soft matter systems. In this paper we study the structural and thermodynamic properties in the fluid regime of the generalized exponential model with a value of index n suggested by Mladek et al. [B. M. Mladek, G. Kahl, and C. N. Likos, Phys. Rev. Lett. (2008)] to fit the effective potential of a typical amphiphilic dendrimers. We use the conventional approach of the liquid state theory based on the hypernetted chain closure of the Ornstein-Zernike equation together with some Monte Carlo numerical simulations. Moreover, we try to detect qualitatively the freezing line exploiting the predictive properties of a one-phase rule based on the expansion of the statistical entropy.Franz Saija2007-04-16Z2010-04-13T11:17:46Zhttp://cab.unime.it/mus/id/eprint/427This item is in the repository with the URL: http://cab.unime.it/mus/id/eprint/4272007-04-16ZMelting line of Krypton in extreme thermodynamic regimesWe have performed extensive computer simulations of the thermodynamic and structural properties of the krypton rare gas modeled by the modified Buckingham exponential-6 interatomic potential. Using a new set of potential parameters, we have found a good agreement with the room temperature equation of state at very high pressure obtained by diamond anvil cell experiments. Moreover, the melting line of the model has been estimated through the Lindemann criterion; the agreement with the low-pressure experiments is excellent, whereas at higher pressure, the model poorly reproduces the typical softening of the experimental melting curve.

This interaction tends to reduce in fact the fraction of methanol aggregated in cyclic clusters. This hypothesis is suggested by the comparison with the data of lattice calculations for the equilibrium distribution of methanol clusters.Marco PierucciniFranz Saija
