Reactivity and structure of NaOH solutions from neural-network-based simulations — •Matti Hellström and Jörg Behler — Lehrstuhl für Theoretische Chemie, Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Germany
Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) is soluble in water up to very high concentrations and has many applications in chemical industry. Using a high-dimensional neural network potential for NaOH(aq) based on dispersion-corrected DFT calculations, we have performed large-scale molecular dynamics simulations with close to ab initio quality. The simulations reveal an unexpected multitude of concentration-dependent presolvation mechanisms governing the proton-transfer rate from H2O to OH− , and a large variety of coordination environments around the Na+ ions .
