Recently it has been revealed that even a single-component liquid can have more than two liquid states. The transition between these liquid states is called the "liquid-liquid transition." Most known liquid-liquid transitions occur at temperatures and pressures which are difficult to access experimentally, so the physical nature of the transition, particularly the kinetics, has remained elusive. However, the recent discovery of liquid-liquid transitions in molecular liquids opens up a… CONTINUE READING
