Melting temperature (T m) of ice I h was computed from solid-liquid phases using two-phase existence method. A pure solid phase with a given lattice structure was equilibrated via molecular-dynamics (MD) simulation using the isobaric-isothermal ensemble. The liquid phase was cooled to the temperature T, the same as the initial temperature set for the solid phase, and was equilibrated. The predictor-corrector algorithm was applied to solve the equations of motion, for which the MD time step of 1.0 fs was chosen.
