Communication: Thermodynamics of water modeled using ab initio simulations


Weber, V; Asthagiri, D (2010). Communication: Thermodynamics of water modeled using ab initio simulations. Journal of Chemical Physics, 133(14):141101.

Abstract

We regularize the potential distribution framework to calculate the excess free energy of liquid watersimulated with the BLYP-D density functional. Assuming classical statistical mechanical simulations at 350 K model the liquid at 298 K, the calculated free energy is found in fair agreement with experiments, but the excess internal energy and hence also the excess entropy are not. The utility of thermodynamic characterization in understanding the role of high temperatures to mimic nuclear quantum effects and in evaluating ab initio simulations is noted. 2010 American Institute of Physics. doi:10.1063/1.3499315

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
