1. Introduction
Molecular crystals are characterized by their strong intramolecular forces and much
weaker intermolecular forces. High-pressure spectroscopic studies provide useful data for
refining the various model potentials which are used to predict the physical properties of
such systems as well as the formation of various crystalline phases.
In the most cases, the melting temperature of crystals is described by the empirical
Simon equation ln (P + a) = c lnT + b, where a, b and c are constant and P and T,
respectively, are the melting pressure and the melting temperature [1]. However, this
equation cannot be used for crystals at extremely high pressure.
On the theoretical side, in order to determine the melting temperature we must use
the equilibrium condition of the liquid and solid phases. However, a clear expression of
the melting temperature has not yet been obtained in this way.
Notice that the limiting temperature of absolute stability for the crystalline state at a
determined pressure is not far from the melting temperature. Therefore, some researchers
had identified the melting curve with the curve of absolute stability for the crystalline
state. In order to better determine the limiting temperature of absolute stability for the
crystalline state, the correlation effects are calculated using the one-particle distribution
function method [4, 10]. Because the difference between these two temperatures is large

at high pressure, this approximation is effective only at low pressure. Other researchers
have concluded that it is impossible to find the melting temperature using only the limit
of absolute stability for the solid phase because the obtained results on the basis of
the self-consistent phonon method and the one-particle distribution function method are
larger than the corresponding melting temperatures by a factor of 3 to 4 and 1.3 to 1.6,
respectively [5].
On the basis of the statistical moment method (SMM) in statistical mechanics, some
authors have determined the limiting temperature of absolute stability for the crystalline
state at various pressures and then they adjust this temperature in order to find the melting
temperature [9, 10]. The melting temperature is obtained by this way for low as well as
high pressures. The calculated results for the inert gas crystals agree rather well with the
experimental data [2].
In the present study, we apply the SMM to investigate the equation of state and
the melting temperature of solid N2, CO, CO2 and N2O. We will calculate the pressure
dependence of the lattice constant and the melting temperature of these crystals.

here P is the hydrostatic pressure, v is the volume of the fcc lattice, a is the nearest
neighbor distance of the fcc crystal, a⃗i is the vector determining the equilibrium position
of the ith particle, ϕi0 is the interaction potential between the ith particle and the 0th
particle, γTG is the Gruneisen constant and kB is the Boltzmann constant. From the limiting

We notice that the nearest neighbor distance am corresponding to the melting
temperature Tm of the crystal is approximately equal to the nearest neighbor distance as
corresponding to limiting temperature Ts. In addition, from (2.1) we see that temperature
T is a function of nearest neighbor distance a when pressure P is constant, i.e. T = T(a).
Therefore, we can expand temperature Tm according to the distance difference am - as
and keep only the first approximate term [2]

structure, the interaction potential between two atoms is usually used in the form of the

The discrepancy in the melting temperature of β-N2 that exists between our

results and the experimental data [3] it is 2.69% at P = 0 and increases to 5% compared
with the experimental data [8] at P = 100 bar. Our calculation is better than that in [10].
Figure 4. The limiting temperature of absolute stability and the melting temperature
at different pressures for β-CO
The discrepancy in the melting temperature of β-CO that exists between our
calculated results and the experimental data [8] is 5.75% at P = 0 and increases to 7.68%
at P = 100 bar.
3. Conclusion
From the SMM and the limiting condition of absolute stability for the crystalline
state, we find the equation of state, the limiting temperature of absolute stability for the
crystalline state and the melting temperature for crystals with fcc and hcp structures at zero
pressure and under pressure, the equation for calculating the nearest neighbor distances
at pressure P and at temperature 0 K for fcc and hcp crystals. These results are analytic
and general.
Theoretical results are applied to determine the melting temperature for molecular
cryocrystals of nitrogen type (N2, CO, N2O, CO2) with fcc and hcp structures in the
interval of pressure from 0 to 100 bar for β-N2, β-CO and from 0 to 1000 bar for
α-CO2, α-N2O. In general, our numerical calculations are in good agreement with the
experimental data [3, 6-8] and other calculation [10], especially for α-N2O, β-N2 and
β-CO molecular cryocrystals. Our obtained results can be enlarged to cases in higher
pressures.
