… of homogeneous bulk systems at thermodynamic equilibrium conditions. However, it is intriguing to see how local solvation phenomena in nanoheterogeneous environments determine the reactivity and selectivity in solution as well as the function of electrocatalysts, receptors, and enzymes.  In RESOLV we wish to extend those global concepts into spatially and time-resolved properties and establish new concepts of relevance to Solvation Science. We will tackle this grand theme by introducing local perspectives of (i) solvation thermodynamics including entropy, (ii) site-specific polarity, proticity…
