Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
    • n solvate In physical chemistry, a term suggested to denote supposed compounds of one or more molecules of a solvent either with the ions or with the un-dissociated molecules of a dissolved substance: if the solvent is water, these compounds are called hydrates.

Usage

In literature:

On solution in water, hydration or solvation probably takes place with the production of heat.

In science:

Here we want to consider how it is affected by the surface solvation effect.
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
This tells us that the surface solvation effect reduces the number of sequences, smax seq < ln q − s.
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
Only very careful design, at which Γd/δB d = Γ/δB , would be able to provide the ensemble of sequences adequate to their solvation conditions, in which case the solvation effect does not increase energy and does not rule any sequences out of the competition.
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
Notice that the condition Γd /δB d = Γ/δB does not involve design temperature, it specifies only the balance of solvation and bulk heteropolymeric effects.
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
In this paper, we examined the interplay of surface solvation effects and sequence design for protein-like heteropolymer globule.
