Based on a suitable density-functional theory for inhomogeneous fluids we investigate both the liquid-vapor coexistence curve of the bulk phase diagram and interfacial structures of molecular fluids in general and Stockmayer fluids in particular. We derive a scheme which allows us to analyze one-component fluids composed of molecules with strong permanent dipole moments which are shown to affect significantly the bulk phase diagram. The critical temperature increases as a function of the… CONTINUE READING
