The surface tension of the solution may be somewhat useful, although
this is an equilibrium property that may be hard to relate to activation
energies that you are after. Note that nucleation time is also
Finally, vacuum/liquid surface tensions of salt solutions are difficult
to get correct in simulations and the may need application of
