Covalent liquids: Experimental aspects

  • J. E. Enderby


A review is given of the extent to which covalency corrections must be applied to models of liquid alloys based on simple ionic or hard-sphere interactions. In some cases the corrections need to be madelocally (e.g. Cu2Se) and in other cases the covalency isextended and leads to network formation.

Classical, semiclassical, quantum theories of liquid structure 

PACS 61.25

Studies of specific liquid structures 


Si descrive fino a che punto le correzioni di covalenza devono essere applicate a modelli di leghe di liquidi basate su interazioni semplici ioniche o di sfera dura. In alcuni casi le correzioni necessitano di esser fatte localmente (per esempio Cu2Se) ed in altri casi la covalenza è estesa e porta a formazione di network.
