q-TIP4P/F model of water

The q-TIP4P/F model [1] is a flexible version of the TIP4P/2005 model of water designed for use in path integral simulations.

Melting point[edit]

The melting point was found to be at 1 bar via direct coexistence calculations, and at 257K from calculations of the Gibbs energy function [2].

Isotope effects[edit]

(D20) Pressure Water model/technique Reference
1 bar q-TIP4P/F [3]
1 bar experimental value [4]
(T20) Pressure Water model/technique Reference
1 bar q-TIP4P/F [3]
0.6629 kPa experimental value [5]

It is worth pointing out that the calculations presented in the work of Ramírez and Herrero [3] used the melting point of the q-TIP4P/F model as its "reference state". It is perhaps more fruitful to examine the relative changes upon isotopic substitution: (experimental value: 3.68 K) and (experimental value: 4.49 K).

Ice Ih[edit]

Isotope effects have also been studied for ice Ih [6].
