The Hydrophobic Gap at High Hydrostatic Pressures

Wirkert, Florian J. ; Hölzl, Christoph ; Paulus, Michael ; Salmen, Paul ; Tolan, Metin ; Horinek, Dominik ; Nase, Julia


We have gained new insight into the so-called hydrophobic gap, a molecularly thin region of decreased electron density at the interface between water and a solid hydrophobic surface, by X-ray reflectivity experiments and molecular dynamics simulations at different hydrostatic pressures. Pressure variations show that the hydrophobic gap persists up to a pressure of 5 kbar. The electron depletion ...
