Temperature gradients polarize water, a nonequilibrium effect that may result in significant electrostatic fields for strong thermal gradients. Using nonequilibrium molecular dynamics simulations, we show that the thermal polarization features a significant dependence with temperature that ultimately leads to an inversion phenomenon, whereby the polarization field reverses its sign at a specific temperature. Temperature inversion effects have been reported before in the Soret coefficient of… Expand

The rich phase behavior of the thermopolarization of water: from a reversal in the polarization, to enhancement near criticality conditions.
TLDR
It is shown that the TIP4P/2005 model features a reversal in the sign of the thermal polarization at densities ∼1 g cm(-3), consistent with the recent observation of this reversal phenomenon in SPC/E water and points the existence of this general physical phenomenon in water. Expand

TLDR
This work forms an analytically solvable microscopic model of size-asymmetric dumbbell molecules in a temperature gradient using a mean-field, local equilibrium approach and reveals the relationship between the extent of thermomolecular orientation and polarization, and molecular volume, size anisotropy and dipole moment. Expand
Polarisation of polar dumbbell fluids in thermal gradients: the importance of the treatment of electrostatic interactions
ABSTRACT We use non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations to study dipolar dumbbell fluids in a thermal gradient. We study the relative orientation of size asymmetric molecules with respect toExpand
A computational approach to calculate the heat of transport of aqueous solutions
TLDR
A computational approach to calculate heats of transport of aqueous solutions at finite concentrations is discussed, and theoretical evidence for the existence of minima in the Soret coefficient of LiCl is found, where the magnitude of the heat of transport is maximized. Expand
Theoretical Prediction of Thermal Polarization.
TLDR
A mean-field theory to explain the thermo-orientation effect in an off-center Stockmayer fluid is presented, and further light is shed on how the nonequilibrium result arises from the competition between the two gradients. Expand
Numerical evidence for thermally induced monopoles
TLDR
Numerical simulations show that a pair of heated/cooled colloidal particles in a dipolar solvent behaves like oppositely charged electric or magnetic monopoles, as recently suggested theoretically, and the field distribution induced in the solvent is in excellent agreement with the field generated by two homogeneously charged spheres in vacuum. Expand
Dynamical Ordering of Hydrogen Molecules Induced by Heat Flux.
TLDR
Dynamical ordering purely induced by heat flux is found, which should be distinguished from static ordering like orientational alignment, as decelerated translational motions and enhanced intensity of H-H vibrational power spectra despite the little structural ordering. Expand
Molecular alignment in molecular fluids induced by coupling between density and thermal gradients.
TLDR
The investigation of the response of molecular fluids confined in slit pores under the influence of a thermal gradient and/or an applied force finds that the average degree of orientation is proportional to the density gradient of the fluid in the confined region and that the orientation increases with the magnitude of the force. Expand
Thermal conductivity of ice polymorphs: a computational study.
TLDR
The results indicate that the hydrogen bond network does not play a significant role in defining the thermal transport mechanisms of ice at high pressures, and the simulated thermal conductivities can be rationalized in terms of the performance of the models in predicting the equation of state of ice. Expand
Thermo-orientation in fluids of arbitrarily shaped particles.
TLDR
NEMD simulations are extended to uncharged particles of various shapes and mass distribution, including chiral cases to correlate the thermo-orientation response of arbitrarily shaped particles to quantities that characterize their shape andmass distribution. Expand
