The thermodynamic properties of materials are intensive thermodynamic parameters which are specific to a given material. Each is directly related to a second order differential of a thermodynamic potential. Examples for a simple 1-component system are:

  • Clear explanation of reaction kinetics for liquids, gases, and solids Thermodynamics of Materials provides a comprehensive reference for chemical engineers and others whose work involves materials science. Volume 2 reviews macroscopic thermodynamics before moving on to the more complex behavior of defects and interfaces. The kinetics of liquids and gases are explored through discussion of.

  • Compressibility (or its inverse, the bulk modulus)
  • Isothermal compressibility
βT=1V(VP)T=1V2GP2{displaystyle beta _{T}=-{frac {1}{V}}left({frac {partial V}{partial P}}right)_{T}quad =-{frac {1}{V}},{frac {partial ^{2}G}{partial P^{2}}}}
  • Adiabatic compressibility
βS=1V(VP)S=1V2HP2{displaystyle beta _{S}=-{frac {1}{V}}left({frac {partial V}{partial P}}right)_{S}quad =-{frac {1}{V}},{frac {partial ^{2}H}{partial P^{2}}}}
  • Specific heat (Note - the extensive analog is the heat capacity)
  • Specific heat at constant pressure
cP=TN(ST)P=TN2GT2{displaystyle c_{P}={frac {T}{N}}left({frac {partial S}{partial T}}right)_{P}quad =-{frac {T}{N}},{frac {partial ^{2}G}{partial T^{2}}}}
  • Specific heat at constant volume
cV=TN(ST)V=TN2AT2{displaystyle c_{V}={frac {T}{N}}left({frac {partial S}{partial T}}right)_{V}quad =-{frac {T}{N}},{frac {partial ^{2}A}{partial T^{2}}}}

  • Coefficient of thermal expansion
α=1V(VT)P=1V2GPT{displaystyle alpha ={frac {1}{V}}left({frac {partial V}{partial T}}right)_{P}quad ={frac {1}{V}},{frac {partial ^{2}G}{partial Ppartial T}}}

where P is pressure, V is volume, T is temperature, S is entropy, and N is the number of particles.

For a single component system, only three second derivatives are needed in order to derive all others, and so only three material properties are needed to derive all others. For a single component system, the 'standard' three parameters are the isothermal compressibility βT{displaystyle beta _{T}}, the specific heat at constant pressure cP{displaystyle c_{P}}, and the coefficient of thermal expansion α{displaystyle alpha }.

For example, the following equations are true:

cP=cV+TVα2NβT{displaystyle c_{P}=c_{V}+{frac {TValpha ^{2}}{Nbeta _{T}}}}
βT=βS+TVα2NcP{displaystyle beta _{T}=beta _{S}+{frac {TValpha ^{2}}{Nc_{P}}}}

The three 'standard' properties are in fact the three possible second derivatives of the Gibbs free energy with respect to temperature and pressure.
