# Quantum-mechanical exploration of the phase diagram of water

@article{Reinhardt2021QuantummechanicalEO, title={Quantum-mechanical exploration of the phase diagram of water}, author={Aleks Reinhardt and Bingqing Cheng}, journal={Nature Communications}, year={2021}, volume={12} }

The set of known stable phases of water may not be complete, and some of the phase boundaries between them are fuzzy. Starting from liquid water and a comprehensive set of 50 ice structures, we compute the phase diagram at three hybrid density-functional-theory levels of approximation, accounting for thermal and nuclear fluctuations as well as proton disorder. Such calculations are only made tractable because we combine machine-learning methods and advanced free-energy techniques. The computed… Expand

It is shown that nuclear-quantum effects contribute a crucial 0.2 meV/H2O to the stability of ice Ih, making it more stable than ice Ic, and the ab initio description leads to structural properties in excellent agreement with experiments and reliable estimates of the melting points of light and heavy water.

It is found that, while the experimental ice-I/liquid and ice-III/liquid coexistence lines are described reasonably well by this model, the ice-II phase is predicted to be metastable and the coupling between intramolecular flexibility and intermolecular interactions influences the computed phase diagram by comparing the results with those of the underlying rigid-body water model.
