86) each pair of spheres in the ring receives an eHS(rlk), meaning the ring is fully self‐avoiding. This is in contrast to a similar approximation for chain ­formation in Eq. (36), for which the steric effects are limited to first and second 34 BENNETT D. MARSHALL AND WALTER G. CHAPMAN neighbors along the chain, which ultimately allows for the factorization of the chain into dimer and triplet contributions. Here, since the ring graph cannot be factorized regardless of the superposition used, the additional connectivity of Eq.

THERMODYNAMIC PERTURBATION THEORY FOR ASSOCIATING MOLECULES 41 The development of cn( o ) follows a similar path to the chain contribution for doubly bonded association sites Eq. (39). The final result is (in a slightly different form) [91] o cn V 1 n! s o n n s ,d Z n (99) where  1 s, d exp kB T d 1 o yHS d (100) with o( s ) being the monomer density of s molecules, o( d ) the monomer density of directional molecules and δ(n) being a second‐order correction to the superposition approximation Eq.

Two methods were suggested to include a perturbation for association in a DFT for nonpolar spheres. One approach was to include association using the local density approximation [52, 96] or using weighted densities of the bulk free energy due to association in a similar way to that used to create a hard sphere free energy ­functional by Tarazona or later Rosenfeld [97]. The second approach was to take advantage of the fact that Wertheim’s TPT for associating molecules was already written in the form of a free energy functional (see Eqs.
