Temperature-Induced Evolution of a Cluster Structure in n-nonan-1-ol: Experimental Study and Quantum-Chemistry Calculations
Section: Atoms and Molecules
Original Author's Text: English
Abstract: It is well known that alcohols belong to the class of partly ordered liquids, which can form aggregates or clusters with different numbers of molecules. The object of our investigation is n-nonan-1-ol. The experimentally obtained temperature-induced evolution of n-nonan-1-ol in the temperature range from –20 to 0C is analyzed. Experimental results are compared with the results of the quantum-chemistry computer simulation. It is shown that, at the liquid-solid phase transition, one can observe a change of the cluster structure from smaller to bigger associates.
Key words: cluster structure, n-nonan-1-ol.
