Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Molecular crystals are studied using the Car-Parrinello ab initio molecular dynamics simulation technique. In particular, the motion of protons in a variety of systems is considered. Results are presented on the rotation of the methyl group in solid nitromethane and proton transfer through a hydrogen bond in hydrogen chloride dihydrate crystal.
