Prediction Of Entropy And Dynamic Properties Of Water Below The Homogeneous Nucleation Temperature, Francis Starr, C. Angell, H. Stanley Jan 2003

Prediction Of Entropy And Dynamic Properties Of Water Below The Homogeneous Nucleation Temperature, Francis Starr, C. Angell, H. Stanley

Francis Starr

The behavior of thermodynamic and dynamic properties of liquid water at atmospheric pressure in the temperature range between the lower limit of supercooling (TH ≈ 235 K) and the onset of the glassy state at Tg has been the focus of much research, and many questions remain about the properties of water in this region. Since direct measurements on water in this temperature range remain largely infeasible, we use existing experimental measurements of the entropy, specific heat, and enthalpy outside this range to construct a possible form of the en- tropy in the “difficult-to-probe” region. Assuming that the entropy is well-defined ...


Dynamics Of Deeply Supercooled Water, Francis W. Starr, C. A. Angell, E. La Nave, S. Sastry, A. Scala, F. Sciortino, H. E. Stanley Jan 2003

Dynamics Of Deeply Supercooled Water, Francis W. Starr, C. A. Angell, E. La Nave, S. Sastry, A. Scala, F. Sciortino, H. E. Stanley

Francis Starr

We review recent results on the connection between thermodynamics and dynamics in a model for water. We verify the Adam–Gibbs relation between entropy and dynamic properties using computer simulations, which allow direct access to the relevant properties. We combine experimental measurements of entropy with the Adam–Gibbs hypothesis to predict dynamic properties in deeply supercooled states, which are difficult to access experimentally. We find evidence suggesting that the glass transition temperature of water may be significantly higher than previously reported, but is still consistent with recent measurements. Finally, we discuss the hypothesis that the dynamical behavior of deeply supercooled ...
