Theoretical spectroscopy of isotopically dilute water and hydrophobicity.
A theoretical spectroscopic map based on a hybrid quantum-classical molecular simulation approach using a methane-water system is built and it is shown that the water molecules facing the methane molecule behave similarly to the high temperature water, and a few of the first shell water molecules behave more like cold water.
Influence of crowding on hydrophobic hydration-shell structure.
Analysis of the results using a Muller-like two-state equilibrium between more ordered and less ordered hydration-shell structures implies that crossover temperature changes are dictated primarily by enthalpic stabilization of the more ordered hydrated structures.
Hydration-Shell Vibrational Spectroscopy.
Hydration-shell vibrational spectroscopy provides an experimental window into solute-induced water structure changes that mediate aqueous folding, binding, and self-assembly, and combining vibrational-MCR with emerging theoretical modeling strategies promises synergetic advances in the predictive understanding of multi-scale self- assembly processes of both biological and technological interest.
Polymorphic transitions in single crystals: A new molecular dynamics method
A new Lagrangian formulation is introduced. It can be used to make molecular dynamics (MD) calculations on systems under the most general, externally applied, conditions of stress. In this
Accurate spin-dependent electron liquid correlation energies for local spin density calculations: a critical analysis
We assess various approximate forms for the correlation energy per particle of the spin-polarized homogeneous electron gas that have frequently been used in applications of the local spin density
Hydrophobic hydration of methane
The method of neutron diffraction and isotopic substitution (NDIS) with H/D substitution on both the solute and the solvent was used to determine the hydration structure of a methane molecule (CM4, M
Study of Pair Contact Formation among Hydrophobic Residues in a Model HP-36 Protein: Relationship between Contact Order Parameter and Rate of Folding and Collapse
The distance dependent pair correlation function among the hydrophobic residues is defined and calculated and it is found that approach to the final collapsed state is almost always faster when the final state is nativelike.
Entropy of hydrophobic hydration: Extension to hydrophobic chains
A statistical mechanical formulation for the entropy in terms of multiparticle correlation functions, used previously to calculate entropies of the hydration of simple hydrophobic solutes, has been
