Abstract

The equilibria of energetically non-equivalent states of molecules conformational, orientational, configurational significantly contribute to the heat capacity changes at the phase transitions such as crystal liquid, rigid crystal plastic crystal, glass liquid, and liquid gas. Indeed, these equilibria are critical to the very definition of what the pure chemical compound is. In this Chapter we analyze these phenomena and available relevant experimental data using both phenomenological and statistical mechanical approaches.
