The solvation of simple ions in water is studied using molecular dynamics simulations with a polarizable force field. Previous simulations using this potential demonstrated that anions are more favorably solvated in water than cations. The present work is an attempt to explain this result by examining the effects of ions on the surrounding water structure, with particular focus on the first solvation shell and its interactions with the surrounding water. We conclude that while the first… CONTINUE READING
