Abstract

In this paper, a silica (SiO2) surface in the presence of water has been studied using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Water and silica models have been created separately, relaxed and then put side by side to study the silica-water interface. All the intra- and inter-molecular interactions have been described by the reactive force field ReaxFF. From the molecular simulations, structural properties of water and silica, silica surface reactivity, diffusion of water molecule into silica have been investigated. For molecular simulations, open source MD code LAMMPS has been used.
