VB states for the system.
Disconnectivity graph for MSEVB . Point groups and energies are given below each minimum.
A pathway for that links the global minimum structure on the left to one of the two extended minima on the right. The MSEVB energy is given below each stationary point. The extended hydrogen bond in the transition state (center), which necessitated relaxation of the VB state assignment cutoffs, is highlighted.
Assignment of hydration shells around a symmetric Zundel-type species in a system. The pivot species is shown unshaded, the first hydration shell in dark blue and the second in light blue.
Global minima for (top) and (bottom). The structures were optimized to rms forces below and , respectively.
Disconnectivity graph for TIP3P . Point groups and energies are given below each minimum.
Top: the three lowest MSEVB minima located for . Bottom: the three lowest cubiclike MSEVB minima located for . Energies are in . The structures were optimized to a rms force tolerance of .
Variation in (a) the energy and (b) the number of VB states calculated with the number of hydration shells included in the MSEVB expansion for the lowest energy three shell (solid line) and nine shell (dashed line) structures. Values are from single point calculations carried out at the three shell equilibrium geometries.
