Abstract

The objective of this paper is to estimate and report the values of thermodiffusion factor for different compositions of nC6-nC10 at standard temperature and pressure condition using an enhanced boundary driven non-equilibrium molecular dynamics algorithm, i.e., MHEX algorithm. This recently developed enhanced algorithm, better suited for small and medium size systems, predicts a decrease in the thermodiffusive separation as the concentration of the heavier component increases.text
