YAMAKI, Sahori B.; PEDROSO, Andréa G.  and  ATVARS, Teresa D. Z.. Glassy state on the undergraduate course in chemistry (physical chemistry). Quím. Nova [online]. 2002, vol.25, n.2, pp.330-334. ISSN 0100-4042.

We consider the relevance of the study of the glassy state properties and the glass transition as important topics of the physical chemistry for undergraduate courses of Chemistry. Two of the most important theoretical approaches for the description of the glassy state, the thermodynamic and the kinetic models, are summarized with emphasis on the physical chemistry aspects. Examples illustrating the glass transition of some materials are also presented.

Keywords : glassy state; phase transitions; thermodynamic and kinetic models.
