Merging Empirical Valence Bond Theory with Quantum Chemistry to Model Proton Transfer Processes in Water

Eckhard Spohr, Martin Korth, Sebastian Dohm


Proton transfer processes in water are of fundamental importance for, among others, electrochemical proton discharge. Empirical valence bond (EVB) approaches were shown in the past to be a versatile tool for modeling complex phenomena such as proton discharge at metal electrodes. By replacing empirical fitting procedures with on-the-fly quantum chemistry (QC) calculations, we arrive at a transferable and systematically tunable description of proton transfer in water with EVB.
