|Description:||Computer simulations of reaction processes in solution in general rely on the definition of a reaction coordinate and the determination of the thermodynamic changes of the system along the reaction coordinate. The reaction coordinate often is constituted of characteristic geometrical properties of the reactive solute species, while the contributions of solvent molecules are implicitly included in the thermodynamics of the solute degrees of freedoms. However, solvent dynamics can provide the driving force for the reaction process, and in such cases explicit description of the solvent contribution in the free energy of the reaction process becomes necessary. We report here a method that can be used to analyze the solvent contributions to the reaction activation free energies from the combined QM/MM minimum free-energy path simulations. The method was applied to the self-exchange SN2 reaction of CH3Cl + Cl-, showing that the importance of solvent-solute interactions to the reaction process. The results were further discussed in the context of coupling between solvent and solute molecules in reaction processes. © 2010 American Chemical Society.;link_to_subscribed_fulltext|
