This report proposes the solution of the long standing problem regarding the key property governing the pressure related dynamics in glass forming and complex systems: the determination of the apparent activation volume Va and its pressure dependence. Results are tested in the previtreous domain, up to P ~ 1.2 GPa, for glass forming diisobutyl phthalate (DIIP, low molecular weight liquid), isoctyloxycyanobiphenyl (8*OCB, liquid crystal), bisphenol A/epichlorohydrin (EPON 828, epoxy resin).

The importance of the activation volume for the description of the molecular dynamics of glass-forming liquids

The result confirms the general rule that the hydrogen bonding glass-forming liquids exhibit much lower values of dT(g)/dP compared to the van der Waals systems, and points out that the activation volume correlates fairly well with the molecular volume in the case of hydrogen bonding liquids.

Effect of Pressure on the Dielectric Spectra of Polymeric Systems

Pressure is one of the essential thermodynamic variables that control the structure and the associated dynamics of polymers and glass-forming systems. The pressure dependence of the viscoelastic

Plastic deformation of glassy polymers: correlation between shear activation volume and entanglement density

The structural relaxation caused by the plastic deformation of polymer glasses is not yet fully understood. In particular, the size scale of the localized plastic relaxation events is currently

Effect of high hydrostatic pressure on the dielectric relaxation in a non-crystallizable monohydroxy alcohol in its supercooled liquid and glassy states.

Both processes I and II are significantly affected by hydrogen bonding and both contribute to the structural relaxation as well as the activation volume, activation enthalpy, and a comparison of the relaxation times with the g factor conclude.

Analysis of experimental data on the structural relaxation time tau(alpha) in various glass formers revealed its universality at the critical temperature T(c) of the mode-coupling theory. In most

Activation volume of selected liquid crystals in the density scaling regime

This paper demonstrates and thoroughly analyze the activation volumetric properties of selected liquid crystals in the nematic and crystalline E phases in comparison with those reported for glass-forming liquids and suggests that the increasing pressure dependences of the activation volume in isothermal conditions and the negative curvature of the pressure dependence of isothermal longitudinal relaxation times can be related to the formation of antiparallel doublets in the examined liquid crystals.

Activation volume in the density scaling regime: Equation of state and its test by using experimental and simulation data

In this paper, a formalism for the activation volume of glass forming materials is suggested. An isothermal equation of state for the activation volume is formulated, which is extended to a
