Dipolar Order in Molecular Fluids: I. Toward an Understanding
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
The origin behind the dipolar order in molecular fluids is investigated by using a simple dipolar fluid and Monte Carlo simulation technique. A penalty function is employed to separately manipulate the positional and orientational structure of the fluid. By considering the distance-dependent Kirkwood function G (k), which in turn is related to the dielectric permittivity of the fluid, it is observed that both positional and orientational ordering are involved to establish dipolar order.
