Abstract:

The microscopic structures of methanol-cyclohexane system at different pressures are studied by the Monte Carlo method, and the results show that the significant aggregation of methanol molecules and methanol clusters with the largest size are found in the vicinity of the solution's critical point. It is also found that the enhanced solute-solvent clustering occurs below the solution's critical point or subcritical point.

Key words: Methanol-cyclohexane system, Monte carlo method, Clusters
