Expressions for the chemical potentials of the components of gas mixtures and liquid solutions are obtained in terms of relatively simple integrals in the configuration spaces of molecular pairs. The… Expand

Outlines are sketched for a general statistical mechanical theory of transport processes; e.g., diffusion, heat transfer, fluid flow, and response to time‐dependent external force fields. In the case… Expand

A general statistical mechanical theory of interfacial phenomena is developed and expressions are derived relating the surface tension and other superficial thermodynamic functions to the potential… Expand

A theory of the intrinsic viscosities and translational diffusion constants of flexible macromolecules is developed on the basis of the random coil model with hindered internal rotation. Proper… Expand

An extension of the Onsager theory of dielectric polarization is presented. The local dielectric constant is approximated by the macroscopic dielectric constant of the fluid in a region outside a… Expand

A general statistical mechanical theory of solutions is developed with the aid of the theory of composition fluctuations in the grand canonical ensemble. It is shown that the derivatives of the… Expand

The general theory of irreversible processes in solutions of macromolecules, previously formulated by the author, is reviewed. The theory is based upon the Oseen method for determining the… Expand
