  • We study a phase-field variational model for the solvation of charged molecules with an implicit solvent. The solvation free-energy functional of all phase fields consists of the surface energy, solute excluded volume and solute-solvent van der Waals dispersion energy, and electrostatic free energy. The surface energy is defined by the van der Waals–Cahn–Hilliard functional with squared gradient and a double-well potential. The electrostatic part of free energy is defined through the… CONTINUE READING
