  • An exposition of a potentially useful graph-theoretical method for comparing structures is given. The concept of rigorous comparison of sequences, introduced into mathematics by Muirhead and generalized by Karamata, is applied to contributing terms in bond-additive schemes. Such an approach illuminates the origin for occasional deviations in the trends for structure-property and structure-activity correlations. The method is illustrated on the trends of boiling points and heats of vaporizations in hexane and heptane isomers and the corresponding trends for molecular connectivity indices of the molecules considered. The outlined concept of comparability of structures not only clarifies a posteriori occasional discrepancies inmore » correlations but may also a priori suggest circumstances when one cannot expect simple bond additivity. With the help of the comparability tests the empirical curve-fitting procedures no longer need be based on guessing, intuition, and analogy, since necessity for additional parameters in such schemes can be assessed in advance. 8 tables.« less

  • Polymer reference interaction site model (PRISM) integral equation theory of polymer melts is applied to investigate the role of local chemical structure on interchain packing and thermodynamic properties such as the isothermal compressibility, cohesive energy, and solubility parameters. Chemically realistic rotational isomeric state model (RIS) level calculations are carried out for polyethylene and isotactic and syndiotactic polypropylene. A strong correlation between the thermodynamic properties and the local depletion regime of interchain packing is found. A series of coarse-grained models of decreasing local realism are then investigated, and various schemes are constructed to estimate the coarse-grained model parameters in terms ofmore » polymer structure. For the discrete semiflexible chain and the Gaussian thread models the effects of backbone characteristic ratio and chain branching are incorporated by employing an effective stiffness, or aspect ratio. A strategy for carrying out the mapping from the atomistic to coarse-grained level based on single-chain conformational and interchain packing considerations is studied. For polyethylene and polypropylene, by enforcing an equality of the zero-angle scattering of the atomistic and coarse-grained models, good agreement is found between the local radial distribution functions and reduced solubility parameters predicted by the various models. Numerical predictions of the semiflexible chain model and analytical results for the Gaussian thread liquid are obtained and compared against RIS-level calculations and experimental estimates of the melt solubility parameters. At least within a homologous series of materials, it appears that appropriately calibrated coarse-grained descriptions can reproduce various structural and thermodynamic properties.« less
  • The solid-solution system La{sub 1-x}TiO{sub 3} was investigated over the range 0 {le} x {le} 0.33, i.e., involving end members LaTiO{sub 3} and La{sub 2/3}TiO{sub 3}. X-ray single-crystal and powder neutron diffraction studies have established the structure of La{sub 2/3}TiO{sub 3} for the first time which is described in Pban with a = 5.461(1) {angstrom}, b = 5.482(1) {angstrom}, c = 7.759(3) {angstrom}. La vacancies are ordered largely in the z = 1/2 plane and Ti atoms are displaced from the centers of Ti-O octahedra toward this plane giving rise to c-axis chains consisting of two short Ti-O bonds (1.906more » {angstrom}) alternating with two long Ti-O bonds (1.975 {angstrom}). The Pban structure is found for 0.25 < x < 0.33, an Ibmm structure for 0.20 < x {le} 0.25 and the Pbnm (GdFeO{sub 3} type) structure for 0 {le} x < 0.20. The compounds La{sub 2/3}TiO{sub 3} (x = 0.33) and La{sub 0.70}TiO{sub 3} (x = 0.30) are insulators, La{sub 0.75}TiO{sub 3} (x = 0.25) undergoes a metal-insulator transition and La{sub 0.80}TiO{sub 3} (x = 0.20) to La{sub 0.92}TiO{sub 3} (x = 0.08) are metallic. Electrical, magnetic and structural properties are compared with those of the closely related La{sub 1-x}Sr{sub x}TiO{sub 3} and SrTiO{sub 3-x} systems. It is also argued that oxidized forms of LaTiO{sub 3}, described previously as LaTiO{sub 3+x}, are better understood as La{sub 1-x}TiO{sub 3}. 26 refs., 15 figs., 11 tabs.« less
  • A study of the structure, grain size stability and Vickers microhardness of nanocrystalline aluminum-zirconium alloy composites was conducted. Samples were synthesized by the inert gas condensation process with electron beam evaporation. Transmission electron microscope examinations of the samples were performed at room and elevated temperatures. The behavior of the microstructures of the samples with time and temperature was investigated as a function of specimen composition. Vickers microhardness data were evaluated at room temperature in as-produced and polished compacted specimens. The local chemical composition of individual microhardness indents and average values of the grain size and porosity level were determined formore » a number of samples. Correlations among these microstructural variables and hardness were determined using multiple regression techniques.« less
