AbstractWater monomer and dimer encapsulations into D-2(22)-C-84 fullerene are evaluated. The encapsulation energy is computed at the M06-2X/6-31++G** level, and it is found that the monomer and dimer storage in C-84 yields an energy gain of 10.7 and 17.4kcalmol(-1), respectively. Encapsulation equilibrium constants are computed by using partition functions based on the M06-2X/6-31G** and M06-2X/6-31++G** molecular data. Under high-temperature/high-pressure conditions, similar to that for the encapsulation of rare gases in fullerenes, the computed (H2O)(2)@C-84-to-H2O@C-84 ratio is close to 1:2.
