Abstract:

The use of thermodynamic quantities deviate occasional from their definitions given in standard textbooks. This could lead to misunderstandings and misinterpretations. This paper reviews some definitions and gives a classification of osmotic pressure and osmotic stress experiments as well as a critical view of the lipid and protein literature.
