|Liquid Crystals: Experimental Study of Physical Properties and Phase Transitions
Lowest new price: $49.98
Lowest used price: $74.43
List price: $68.00
This hands-on guide details various experimental techniques used in the study of liquid crystals and other soft-condensed matter systems. Each chapter portrays an important technique used to study and characterize these systems, fully discussing both the capabilities and limitations of each particular method. In addition, the volume also describes general routes used to synthesize liquid crystals, tools to characterize liquid crystal phases, and seeks to show structure property relationships for well known systems. This book will be indispensable for established workers in the field as well as students embarking on liquid crystal research.

Author: Norman H. March
This work provides an introduction to the liquid state. A qualitative description of liquid properties is first given, followed by detailed chapters on thermodynamics, liquid structure in relation to interaction forces and transport properties such as diffusion and viscosity. treatment of complex fluids such as anisotropic liquid crystals and polymers, and of technically important topics such as non-Newtonian and turbulent flows, is included. Surface properties and characteristics of the liquid-vapour critical point are also discussed. While the book focuses on classical liquids, the final chapter deals with quantal fluids.

Polymers are very large molecules consisting of many atoms covalently bonded like a chain. Their structure gives unique physical properties to polymer solutions. This outstanding textbook gives a clear and concise introduction to the modern theory of polymer physics. It describes basic concepts and methods and explains the statistical properties of the assembly of chain-like molecules; topics include scaling theory, concentration fluctuation, gels, and reptation. This is an ideal volume for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in polymer physics.

An introduction to the physics and chemistry of the liquid-vapour phase transition of metals, this book examines the condensed-matter physics relevant to a dense metallic liquid and the molecular chemistry relevant to a dilute atomic vapour. Drawing on resaerch and data from carefully selected fluid-metal systems, it attempts to develop a rigorous theoretical approach to predict the thermodynamic behaviour of fluid metals over the entire liquid-vapour range. The book should appeal tyo theoreticians interested in metal to non-metal transitions or continuous phase transitions in general. It could also be of value to those who need to understand the practical applications of fluid metals, for example, as a high-temperature working fluid or as a key component of semiconductor manufacturing.
