Abstract

Ab initio molecular dynamics simulations are performed for the reaction between HCl and HOCl on an ice surface. The interaction  between  the  two  chlorine  atoms,  and  the  role  played  by  the  acidic  dissociation  of  HCl,  are  elucidated.  The catalytic effect of the ice surface is reproduced and explained. ©1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
