The theory of molecular dynamics was used for the investigation of microsolvation of the SN2 reaction Cl-+CH3Br of water. The energy profile and thermal effects of water molecule are discussed. The analysis showed the importance of hydrogen bonds in terms of localized electron density between chloride ion and the water molecule.
