Title

A Molecular Dynamics Study of Water Clathrates

Abstract

Molecular dynamics calculations were carried out for a series of temperatures between 67 and 315 K for a 20 water molecule microcluster. These studies provided geometrical properties such as pair distribution functions, dynamic properties such as power spectra, and thermodynamic properties such as the caloric equation of state. The molecules were originally arranged in a pentagonal dodecahedral clathrate configuration. The cluster showed a change in structure and other properties around 200 K but did not dissociate even above 300 K.
