Because of its central role in basically all aspects of science, water is certainly one of the most extensively investigated substances from a theoretical point of view. Moreover, the characterization of liquids and solutions under the effect of external electric fields is a long standing and challenging field of investigation for both theoretical and experimental approaches. In this work the behavior of water near charged interfaces has been evaluated considering two different cases: an ion in aqueous solution and a macromolecule of DNA. The methodology used is based on atomistic simulations, specifically adapted to account for the presence of exogenous electric fields.
