Charge-dependent cavity radii for an accurate dielectric continuum model of solvation with emphasis on ions: aqueous solutes with oxo, hydroxo, amino, methyl, chloro, bromo, and fluoro functionalities.


Dielectric continuum solvation models are widely used because they are a computationally efficacious way to simulate equilibrium properties of solutes. With advances that allow for molecular-shaped cavities, they have reached a high level of accuracy, in particular for neutral solutes. However, benchmark tests show that existing schemes for defining… (More)
