The linear and cyclic hydrocarbons were investigated for the density dependence of the energy landscape using a united-atom representation. The isotropic tensile strength of glasses of the materials was provided by the relationship between inherent structure pressure and density. The temperature and density dependence of the energy and pressure of inherent structures was investigated in molecular liquids. The results revealed a pronounced segregation of end groups on the boundary of large voids of low bulk density pentane.
