Abstract
Many theories for polymeric liquids are based on the concepts of cell, hole, free volume or lattice etc. In the theories, van der Waals potential, Lennard-Jones 6-12 potential and their modified potentials are commonly used.In this work, Mie(p, 6) potential was applied to the Continuous Lattice Fluid Theory (which extends the discrete lattices of Lattice Fluid Theory to classically continuous lattices) and Dee-Walsch's Cell Theory (which modifies Flory's Equa-tion of State Theory). Both of them are known to be successful theories for polymeric liquids. Thus, PVT values chang-ing with p (the exponent in the repulsion potential) were calculated and compared with experimental values. And, calculated values of Lattice Fluid Theory, Flory's Equation of State Theory and Cho-Sanchez Theory using pertubation method were also compared. Through the calculated results, van der Waals potential, Lennard-Jones 6-12 potential and Mie(p, 6) potential for polymeric liquids were compared with each other.
