An ionic concentration and size dependent dielectric permittivity Poisson-Boltzmann model for biomolecular solvation studies.

Abstract

By considering the influence of volume exclusion on the solvent dielectric, a variable dielectric Poisson-Boltzmann (VDPB) model is explored for molecular solvation studies by using a dielectric as an explicit function of ionic sizes and concentrations. A finite element method is adopted and an iterative strategy is introduced to numerically solve the VDPB… (More)
