Due to the intermittency of renewable energy sources, alkaline water electrolyzers are typically operated at partial load compared to the nominal design value. It is well-known that gas crossover is dominant at low current densities leading to higher anodic hydrogen content an ...

The thermophysical properties of aqueous electrolyte solutions are of interest for applications such as water electrolyzers and fuel cells. Molecular dynamics (MD) and continuous fractional component Monte Carlo (CFCMC) simulations are used to calculate densities, transport pr ...

One of the important parameters in water management of proton exchange membranes is the electro-osmotic drag (EOD) coefficient of water. The value of the EOD coefficient is difficult to justify, and available literature data on this for Nafion membranes show scattering from in ...

## New Features of the Open Source Monte Carlo Software Brick-CFCMC

### Thermodynamic Integration and Hybrid Trial Moves

We present several new major features added to the Monte Carlo (MC) simulation code Brick-CFCMC for phase- and reaction equilibria calculations (https://gitlab.com/ETh_TU_Delft/Brick-CFCMC). The first one is thermodynamic integration for the computation of excess chemical pote ...

### Open Source Software for Monte Carlo Simulations of Phase and Reaction Equilibria Using the Continuous Fractional Component Method

We present a new molecular simulation code, Brick-CFCMC, for performing Monte Carlo simulations using state-of-the-art simulation techniques. The Continuous Fractional Component (CFC) method is implemented for simulations in the NVT/NPT ensembles, the Gibbs Ensemble, the Grand ...

## Thermodynamics of Industrially Relevant Systems

### Method Development and Applications

In this paper, we review recent advances in the Continuous Fractional Component Monte Carlo (CFCMC) methodology and present a historic overview of the most important developments that have led to this method. The CFCMC method has gained attention for Monte Carlo simulations of ...

Partial molar properties are of fundamental importance for understanding properties of non-ideal mixtures. Josephson and co-workers (Mol. Phys. 2019, 117, 3589–3602) used least squares multiple linear regression to obtain partial molar properties in open constant-pressure ense ...

We introduce an alternative method to perform free energy calculations for mixtures at multiple temperatures and pressures from a single simulation, by combining umbrella sampling and the continuous fractional component Monte Carlo method. One can perform a simulation of a mix ...

## Solubility of water in hydrogen at high pressures

### A molecular simulation study

Hydrogen is one of the most popular alternatives for energy storage. Because of its low volumetric energy density, hydrogen should be compressed for practical storage and transportation purposes. Recently, electrochemical hydrogen compressors (EHCs) have been developed that ar ...

An alternative method for calculating partial molar excess enthalpies and partial molar volumes of components in Monte Carlo (MC) simulations is developed. This method combines the original idea of Frenkel, Ciccotti, and co-workers with the recent continuous fractional compone ...

The effect of confinement on the equilibrium reactive system containing nitrogen dioxide and dinitrogen tetroxide is studied by molecular simulation and the reactive Monte Carlo (RxMC) approach. The bulk-phase reaction was successfully reproduced and five all-silica zeolites ( ...

It is shown that ensemble averages computed in the Gibbs Ensemble with Continuous Fractional Component Monte Carlo (CFCMC GE) are different from those computed in the conventional Gibbs Ensemble (GE). However, it is possible to compute averages corresponding to the conventiona ...
