Water is one of the most important solvents in (bio)chemistry. Due to its properties, solvent effects of water in chemical reactions are well documented. To date, the role of the solvent in aqueous chemical reactions is only partially understood. A full understanding on a detailed molecular level is often completely absent. This issue forms the central theme of Anna Pavlova’s PhD dissertation, which reports on the molecular simulation studies of two prototype aqueous chemical reactions.
