Solvation

solvation

Noncovalent or easily reversible combination of a solvent with solute, or of a dispersion means with the disperse phase; if the solvent is water, solvation is called hydration. Solvation affects the size of ions in solution, thus Na_ is much larger in H2O than in solid NaCl.

A question about Protein

... side chains in the average protein, too. These may or may not adversely affect solubility. Exposed non-polar residues mostly affect the entropy of solvation by “freezing” water molecules in the vicinity of the side chain as an attempt to present a more polar suface to the solution—although the ...

... BrCCb. In connection with our survey of the use of solvent effects on the spectral location of n + o* transitions as means of studying specific solvation of the hydrogen bonding type, it seemed to be of interest to compare by this technique the hydrogen bonding power of chloroform toward amines ...

... electrostatic effects. The computationally intensive nature of these simulations has been an obstacle to the systematic study of many problems in solvation thermodynamics, such as the decomposition of solvation and ligand binding free energies into component enthalpies and entropies. With the ...

The Fiber Disease

... been observed in other cases. We have performed 1 ns MD simulation of an ensemble of 23 structures of compstatin using Generalized Born implicit solvation and found that about 40% structures retained their original type I beta turn while four new families of secondary structures appear. This ...
