Al27 NMR chemical shift of Al(OH)4 - calculated from first principles: Assessment of error cancellation in chemically distinct reference and target systems.

The absolute shielding of the Al27 nucleus in Al(OH)4 - is estimated at the coupled cluster level (515.1 ± 5.3 ppm) and Shielding sensitivity to the choice of method approximation and atomic basis sets used has been evaluated.

$^{27}\text{Al }$ NMR chemical shift of $\text{Al}(\text{OH})_{4}^{-}$ from first principles. Assessment of error cancellation in NMR chemical shift computations in chemically distinct reference and targeted systems

Predicting accurate NMR chemical shieldings relies upon cancellation of different types of error in the ab initio methodology used to calculate the shielding tensor of the analyte of interest and the

Structure of the Nearest Environment of Ions in Aqueous Solutions of Aluminum Chloride According to X-ray Diffraction

Aqueous solutions of aluminum chloride in a wide range of concentrations have been studied by X-ray diffraction under standard conditions. It has been demonstrated that aluminum speciation in highly

Ionic sieving through Ti3C2(OH)2 MXene: First-principles calculations

Recent experiments revealed a great potential of MXene nanosheets for water desalination applications as ultrathin, high-flux, and size/charge-selective sieving membranes. Here, we conduct

Phosphorylation promotes Al(iii) binding to proteins: GEGEGSGG as a case study.

A theoretical protocol is developed that combines molecular dynamics simulations, clustering of structures, and density functional theory for the characterization of the binding of aluminum to the synthetic neurofilament analogue octapeptide GEGEGSGG and its phosphorylated variant and demonstrates the importance of phosphorylation in the ability of a peptide to bind to aluminum.

Interaction potential of Al3+ in water from first principles calculations

We present a parametrization of the interaction potential for Al3+ in water from first principles calculations. We have performed a critical study of the Al3+–water interaction using sequences of

Dipole moment of water from Stark measurements of H2O, HDO, and D2O

The equilibrium dipole moment of the water molecule has been determined from Stark effect measurements on two H2O, one D2O, and six HDO rotational transitions. The variation of the dipole moment
