Zusammenfassung
The semiempirical MNDO-based AM1 and PM3 methods and the orthogonalization-corrected OM1, OM2, and OM3 models were reparameterized to improve their description of bulk water and of proton transfer in water. Reference data included the gas-phase geometries and energies of the water molecule, small water clusters, the hydronium ion, and small hydronium ion–water clusters, as well as the gas-phase potential energy surface for proton transfer between the two water molecules in a Zundel ion, all calculated at the MP2/aug-cc-pVTZ level of theory. Combined QM/MM molecular dynamics simulations were carried out for bulk water and for a proton solvated in water using large cluster models. Both the authentic and reparameterized semiempirical models were employed in the simulations. The reparameterization led to significantly better results in all cases. The new set of OM3 parameters gave the best overall results for the structural and dynamic properties of water and the hydrated proton, with a small but finite barrier of 0.1–0.2 kcal/mol in the potential of mean force for proton transfer, in agreement with ab initio path-integral molecular dynamics simulations. The reparameterized OM3 model is expected to be useful for efficient modeling of proton transfer in aqueous solution.
