Abstract [en]

Molecular dynamics simulations of single-ion Fe2+(aq) and Fe3+(aq) solutions have been performed with two rigid-water models (SPC and SPC/E) and a newly constructed SPC-based flexible-water model (SPC+CCL). The SPC+CCL water model in combination with effective Fe2+ and Fe3+ ion-water potentials manages to reproduce many experimental structural and dynamical properties of the solutions. Special attention is given to the large ion-induced frequency shifts of the OH stretching bands, which are also well reproduced by the SPC+CCL model.

Abstract [en]

The aqueous solvation of metal ions is one of the long-standing and complex problems in chemistry, with implications for and applications in a broad range of biochemical and electrochemical systems, where water is the all-pervasive medium.

This thesis describes computer simulations of Al3+(aq), Fe2+(aq), Fe3+(aq) and Cu2+(aq). Various aspects of the solvation of these polyvalent metal ions in water are addressed, at different levels of theory, using Car-Parrinello molecular dynamics, classical molecular dynamics and quantum-mechanical cluster calculations. Polyvalent metal ions are particularly interesting because of their large influence on the solvent structure, dynamics and thermodynamics, as well as on the properties of the individual solvent molecules. Polyvalent metal ions in aqueous solution also constitute a challenging subject for computer simulations since a sophisticated interaction model is needed to incorporate the large many-body effects.

All the ion-water coordination figures in this thesis are octahedral, except in the Cu2+(aq) solution, where the ion is penta-coordinated with four equatorial neighbours in a plane and one axial neighbour located ~0.45 Å further out from the ion. The equatorial ion-water bonds have covalent character, while the axial water molecule is only electrostatically bound. For all the ions, the OD stretching frequencies of the first-shell water molecules are much more downshifted than in liquid water. In the case of Cu2+(aq), however, only the OD frequencies of the equatorial water molecules are downshifted with respect to bulk water whereas the OD frequencies of the axial water molecule are slightly upshifted.

Various limitations of the Car-Parrinello molecular dynamics simulations have been explored and compared, such as finite system-size effects and shortcomings in the electronic structure calculations. The Car-Parrinello simulations are found to give reasonable descriptions of the polyvalent metal ions in aqueous solution.
