Nonviscous metallic liquid Se

, : Nonviscous metallic liquid Se. Physical Review Letters 99(24): 245901-245901

Viscosity is one of the fundamental physical properties of liquids; for different melts it varies in an extremely wide range. Selenium is among the first elementary substances to have manifested, at compression, a phase transformation in the liquid state accompanied by melt metallization. Direct measurements by means of a real-time radiography show that the viscosity of liquid Se under pressure drops by 500 times to a very low level of 8 mPa s. This is the first case of viscosity measurements being performed both for a relatively viscous semiconducting state and a low-viscous metallic state of the same liquid substance. The viscosity of the Se melt strongly decreases with pressure along the melting curve in a semiconducting state and experiences a further significant drop at melt metallization. A similar phenomenon is expected to be observed in many chalcohenide, halogenide, and oxide melts.

It has recently been demonstrated that the gamma amino butyric acidB (GABAB) agonist baclofen attenuates cocaine but not food self-administration in the rat. This effect appears to be mediated via GABAB receptors in the ventral tegmental area (VTA...
