Constant pressure path integral Gibbs ensemble Monte Carlo method
Abstract
We present the implementation of a realspace constant pressure path integral Gibbs ensemble Monte Carlo (CPPIGEMC) method for the simulation of onecomponent fluid consists of distinguishable quantum particles (henceforth referred to as Boltzmannons) in an external potential field at finite temperatures. We apply this simulation method to study the paraH2 adsorption in NaX zeolite at 77 K and pressures up to 100 bar. We present a new set of effective solidfluid parameters optimized for path integral simulations of hydrogen isotope adsorption and separation in synthetic zeolites. The agreement among CPPIGEMC, experiment, and the path integral grand canonical Monte Carlo method (PIGCMC) is very good, even at high pressures. CPPIGEMC is a particularly useful method for simulation of onecomponent quantum fluid composed of Boltzmannons at finite temperatures, when the chemical potential is difficult to measure or calculate explicitly.We present the implementation of a realspace constant pressure path integral Gibbs ensemble Monte Carlo (CPPIGEMC) method for the simulation of onecomponent fluid consists of distinguishable quantum particles (henceforth referred to as Boltzmannons) in an external potential field at finite temperatures.
