Abstract

Abstract The thermodynamic properties and site—site distribution functions of mixtures of non-spherical molecules are obtained by Monte Carlo simulation. A non-spherical reference-system perturbation theory based on the RISM equation is developed to predict these results. The agreement between theory and simulation for the thermodynamic properties is encouraging. Important differences in the relative peak heights of the site—site distribution functions from theory and simulation are attributed to the role of attractive forces in determining local structure in the fluid mixtures, where the volumes of the components are similar but the well depths differ.
