Abstract

Self-consistent tight binding molecular dynamics studies of TiO2 anatase and rutile nanoclusters in dissociable water are reported. It is found that the structure of the particle expands as a result of interaction between the particle's surface and water. Water molecules dissociate at the nanoparticle surface during simulation.
