Molecular Dynamics Simulation Study for Transport Properties of Diatomic Liquids

We present results for transport properties of diatomic fluids by isothermal-isobaric (NpT) equilibrium molecular dynamics (EMD) simulations using Green-Kubo and Einstein formulas. As the molecular elongation of diatomic molecules increases from the spherical monatomic molecule, the diffusion coefficient increases, indicating that longish shape molecules diffuse more than spherical molecules, and the rotational diffusion coefficients are almost the same in the statistical error since random rotation decreases. The calculated translational viscosity decreases with the molecular elongation of diatomic molecule within statistical error bar, while the rotational viscosity increases. The total thermal conductivity decreases as the molecular elongation increases. This result of thermal conductivity for diatomic molecules by EMD simulations is again inconsistent with the earlier results of those by non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) simulations even though the missing terms related to rotational degree of freedom into the Green-Kubo and Einstein formulas with regard to the calculation of thermal conductivity for molecular fluids are included.
