Gibbs ensemble Monte Carlo simulations are employed to examine the influence of moderately strong electric fields on the vapor-liquid coexistence curves and on structural and energetic properties of the saturated phases of water, methanol, and dimethyl ether. The application of an electric field of 0.1 V/A increases the critical temperature and normal boiling point by approximately 3% compared to the zero field case for all three compounds, whereas the critical density is found to decrease by 1… CONTINUE READING
