Path-integral molecular dynamics simulations of hydrated hydrogen chloride cluster HCl(H$$_2$$O)$$_4$$ on a semiempirical potential energy surface

Takayanagi, Toshiyuki*; Takahashi, Kenta*; Kakizaki, Akira*; Shiga, Motoyuki; Tachikawa, Masanori*

Path-integral molecular dynamics simulations for the HCl(H$$_2$$O)$$_4$$ cluster have been performed on the ground-state potential energy surface directly obtained on-the-fly from semiempirical PM3-MAIS molecular orbital calculations. It is found that the HCl(H$$_2$$O)$$_4$$ cluster has structural rearrangement above the temperature of 300 K showing a liquid-like behavior. Quantum mechanical fluctuation of hydrogen nuclei plays a significant role in structural arrangement processes in this cluster.
