Abstract: Wertheim’s first order thermodynamic perturbation theory is employed to describe the distinct behaviour of fully flexible and linear rigid chains of varying chain lengths in solid phase. In particular, the solid phases of fully flexible and linear rigid chains of varying chain lengths are compared. Several thermodynamic properties such as fluid-solid co-existence boundaries of linear rigid molecules are greatly displaced towards lower densities with increasing chain length, the higher values of packing fractions for linear rigid chains in comparison to fully flexible chains to achieve the same chemical potential.
