A series of geometry, frequency, and energy calculations of chloroaquazinc(II) complexes were carried out at up to the MP2/6-31+G* level. A thorough examination of all species up to and including hexacoordinate species, and with up to six chlorides, was carried out. The structures of the complexes are compared with experimental data where available. The solution chemistry of zinc(II) in the presence of chloride is discussed, and Raman spectra of zinc perchlorate with increasing amount of…

Hydration of beryllium(II) in aqueous solutions of common inorganic salts. A combined vibrational spectroscopic and ab initio molecular orbital study.
The Raman spectroscopic data suggest that the tetra-aqua beryllium(II) ion is thermodynamically stable in perchlorate, chloride, nitrate, and nitrate solutions over the concentration range measured, and that a six-fold coordination of Be2+ can be ruled out.
Thermodynamic consistency in the modeling of speciation in self-complexing electrolytes
Speciation in aqueous solutions of complexing electrolytes is an important topic in environmental, toxicological, and sometimes industrial issues. Its determination requires an estimation of the
Calorimetric studies of the interactions of metalloenzyme active site mimetics with zinc-binding inhibitors.
It is indicated that Zn(BPA)X2 can be used as an active site structural mimetic for zinc metalloenzymes for estimating the free energy contribution of zinc binding to the overall inhibitor active site interactions.
Hydration and speciation studies of Mn2+ in aqueous solution with simple monovalent anions (ClO4-, NO3-, Cl-, Br-).
In order to include the hydration effects around the [Mn(OH2)6](2+), a continuum model approach was employed where the solvent is described by a structureless dielectric polarizable continuum using the Polarizable Continuum Model of Solvation (PCM).
