Development of Thermodynamic Methods for the study of Nanopores

Authors: R. Paul and S.J. Paddison

Affilation: University of Calgary, Canada

Pages: 117 - 120

Keywords: thermodynamical methods, nanopores, polymer electrolytes, polarization

Abstract:
A statistical mechanical formalism is presented for the calculation of the thermodynamic properties of the water in nanopores of polymer electrolytes, with particular emphasis on the polarization. We describe a method that exploits the variational properties of the Ornstein-Zernicke integral equation.
