Questions tagged [explicit-solvent]

For questions about modeling with explicitly simulated solvent molecules. This is typically in the context of electronic structure theory, where solvation effects are included by simulating solvent molecules quantum mechanically (explicit) and/or by some sort of classical continuum (implicit).

Avoiding charge-migration in electronic structure calculations with solvent-like environments

When performing electronic structure calculations on a molecule one can surround it with point charges to mimic a solvent environment and lend polarization effects. There is a bit of a caveat ...

Is there any definitive evidence that implicit solvation methods are more accurate than explicit solvation methods for free energy calculations?

I am looking for real data that concludes that implicit solvent models are definitively better than explicit solvent models for solvation free energy calculations. The motivation is a lovely reviewer ...
