Modeling chemical reactions in aqueous solvents

I want to model the hydrolysis of silicon tetrachloride. But I don't have experience with reactions in aqueous solvents. Therefore, I have two general questions:

1.) The reaction takes place in the shear layer of a silicon tetrachloride jet. Would it be correct to use an eddy dissipation model to calculate the reaction rate?

2.) One reaction product is hydrogen chloride (HCl) with separates in H+ and Cl- Ions. What's the best way to calculate the reaction system. Where do I get appropriate property data for the components of the solution.

Any help would be appreciated.
