Example text

Although a number of methods exist for obtaining the partial charge of the kth atom, qk, a Mulliken population analysis86 is generally used in the SMx solvation models implemented in the AMSOL package, such that: where the summation includes only orbitals, , that are on the kth atom. Given that errors in evaluating partial charges should be systematic, the actual method for deriving these atomic parameters is not a major issue in this solvation approach. At fixed kk,, and considering the variation in the solution free energy with respect to the coefficients defining the AO contributions to the MOs, the following expression can be derived27: where In Eq.

On the other hand, the actual parameter values used in the model depend on whether the AM1 of PM3 semi-empirical model is used for determining the solute properties. Although there are a number of discussions concerning the fundamental theory of this approach and parameter development27,76, it will be briefly reviewed here to illustrate similarities and differences with the two previous solvation models. As usual, the solvent is assumed to be an isotropic, polarizable continuum, and therefore the standard free energy of the QM solute in solution can be expressed as: where G°s is the free energy of solvation and G°(g) is the gas-phase solute energy.

A limitation of the LMO method, however, is that calculations employing such orbitals are restricted to closed-shell systems, but this is not a problem in almost all biological applications. Using LMOs offers no advantages in computational efficiency over conventional semi-empirical approaches for small systems. On the other hand, calculations on large molecules benefit for several reasons. First, all interactions between occupied and virtual LMOs located on atoms separated by distances greater than a user-defined cutoff can be annihilated.
