Usage

In literature:

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

In science:

Based on our results, we are able to show under which conditions solvation effect improves the quality of sequence design.
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
Our goal in the present work is to investigate, for the simplest tractable model, the interplay heteropolymer freezing and sequence design with preferential solvation of some monomer species on the surface of the globule.
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
First we will introduce the solvation model (section II A and Fig. 1).
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
Then we will talk about sequence design technique and how it is affected by the solvation (section II B).
Heteropolymer Sequence Design and Preferential Solvation of Hydrophilic Monomers: One More Application of Random Energy Model
To compute f (σ) for the ground state, we adapt for designed sequences the procedure which was developed in the work for random sequence solvation.
