Computer Simulation Studies of Heat Capacity Effects Associated with Hydrophobic Effects

The solvation of small non-polar particles in water behaves in an anomalous way: their solubility increases strongly with decreasing temperature. This feature has been related to the tendency of water to maintain its hydrogen bond network and has been coined the “hydrophobic effect”. Extensive revie...
