Abstract

We investigate theoretically the phase behavior of particles with limited valence in two dimensions, by solving the first-order Wertheim theory form. As previously found for three dimensions, in two dimensions also the valence has a strong impact on the phase diagram, controlling the location of the gas-liquid coexistence. On decreasing the valence, the critical density and temperature decrease while the region of gas-liquid instability shrinks and vanishes. At low temperatures, the system reaches its ground state with particles forming a fully bonded network which spans the system.
