Title: Bridging the Gap Between Quantum Chemistry and Classical Simulations for CO 2 Capture

We have developed a systematic procedure to generate transferable force fields to simulate the behavior of CO 2 and other gases in open-metal-site metal organic frameworks using high-level quantum chemical calculations. Monte Carlo simulations based on an ab initio force field for CO 2 in the Mg 2(dobpdc) material have been employed to describe the interactions of CO 2 with open metals. Our study has shed some light on the interpretation of thermodynamic data of flue gas in Mg 2(dobpdc). This force field accurately describes the chemistry of the open metal sites, and is transferable to other structures.
