How to calculate the conformational entropy of a molecule?

Introduction It is know that the entropy of a system can be calculated using the formula (1): \begin{equation} \label{eq:entropy_Boltz} S = {k_B}\ln \Omega\tag1 \end{equation} where $k_B$ is the ...

What are the methods for calculating solvation effects in free energies and how do they compare?

I've just found this paper (J. Chem. Phys. 141, 174106 (2014)) that deals with the translational and rotational entropies in solution. The method is promising but, unfortunately, requires a ...

Rigorous definition of electronic entropy

Suppose we want to compute the exact standard molar electronic entropy of helium at a finite but not very high temperature, say $T = 298.15 \textrm{ K}$. By "standard" I mean the standard ...
