Séminaire 06.07.2017 - 14h00

par Mathieu Salanne - 31 mai 2017

Christian Schroder (Université de Vienne, Autriche) présentera jeudi 6 juillet à 14h, barre 43/44, salle 317 :, un séminaire intitulé :

Computational spectroscopy of (polarizable) ionic liquids


Ionic liquids form a class of complex liquids as they consist of charged, dipolar species. The delocalization and
the flexibility of the electron density are the origin of the amphiphilic character of ionic liquids and make them
promising alternatives to conventional, volatile solvents in many applications.
However, ionic liquids are also interesting from a theoretical point of view. Since classical molecular dynamics
force fields are not able to reproduce the dynamics, polarizable forces on the basis of induced dipoles are essential.
This way, the flexibility of the partial charge distribution and the resulting effective screening of Coulomb forces
can be reproduced to accelerate the overall dynamics while keeping hydrogen bonds intact.

In contrast to quantum-chemical calculations, polarizable molecular dynamics simulations are also capable to
follow the dynamics of thousands of ion pairs over several dozens or even hundreds of nanoseconds [1]. Both,
these system sizes and simulation periods are a must for evaluating computational spectra : Starting in the MHz frequency regime, ion pair dynamics can be studied by the nuclear Overhauser effect [2,3]. Dielectric spectroscopy measures the rotational and translational response of single ions as well as polar and
apolar domains to an external field from the MHz to the THz frequency regime [4, 5]. Solvation dynamics in the
THz regime can also be studied by a local electric field emerging from the laser excitation of a chromophore [2].
However, dielectric spectra and the resulting Stokes shift relaxation are related to each other [6].
