The calculation of ion-ion interactions in water is a problem of long standing importance. Modelling these interactions is a prerequisite to explaining Hofmeister (specific ion) effects. We here generalize our solvation model of ions to calculate the free energy of two ions in water as a function of separation. The same procedure has previously been applied to calculate ion interactions with the air-water interface successfully. The Conductor like Screening Model (COSMO) is used. This treats...[Show more]
