Fluids of platelike particles near a hard wall.

Abstract

Fluids consisting of hard platelike particles near a hard wall are investigated using density-functional theory. The density and orientational profiles, as well as the surface tension and the excess coverage, are determined and compared with those of a fluid of rodlike particles. Even for low densities, slight orientational packing effects are found for the… (More)
