High pressure molecular science


Pfeiffer, Helge
Heremans, Karel




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.
