The existence of Dirac cones in the band structure of two-dimensional materials accompanied by unprecedented electronic properties is considered to be a unique feature of graphene related to its hexagonal symmetry. Here, we present other two-dimensional carbon materials, graphynes, that also possess Dirac cones according to first-principles electronic(More)
A systematic scanning tunnelling microscopy study of the self-assembly, intramolecular conformation and supramolecular ordering of different tetraphenylporphyrins (xTPP) with or without a central metal atom (x = 2H, Fe, Co) on Ag(111) at room temperature is presented. The investigation covers a wide range, i.e. the adsorption behaviour from the low(More)
The chemical bond between an adsorbed, laterally coordinated metal ion and a metal surface is affected by an additional axial ligand on the metal ion. This surface analogon of the trans effect was studied in detail using monolayers of various M(II)-tetraphenylporphyrins (MTTPs, M = Fe, Co, Zn) and their nitrosyl complexes on a Ag(111) surface. X-ray(More)
Graphene, a material consisting of a single graphite layer, has recently attracted considerable scientifi c interest due to its unique electronic properties, which makes it a promising candidate for carbon-based electronics. A prerequisite for its usage in electronic devices is the ability to generate bandgaps in graphene, which can be considered as a(More)
Understanding the adsorption and reaction between hydrogen and graphene is of fundamental importance for developing graphene-based concepts for hydrogen storage and for the chemical functionalization of graphene by hydrogenation. Recently, theoretical studies of single-sided hydrogenated graphene, so called graphone, predicted it to be a promising(More)
The fundamental energy gap of a periodic solid distinguishes insulators from metals and characterizes low-energy single-electron excitations. However, the gap in the band structure of the exact multiplicative Kohn-Sham (KS) potential substantially underestimates the fundamental gap, a major limitation of KS density-functional theory. Here, we give a simple(More)
Applying a novel exact-exchange (EXX) approach within time-dependent density-functional theory, we obtained the optical absorption spectrum of bulk silicon in good agreement with experiments including excitonic features. Analysis of the EXX kernel shows that inclusion of the Coulomb coupling of electron-hole pairs and the correct long-wavelength behavior in(More)
We observe and induce conformational switching of individual molecules via scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) at and close to room temperature. 2H-5,10,15,20-Tetrakis-(3,5-di-tert-butyl)-phenylporphyrin adsorbed on Cu(111) forms a peculiar supramolecular ordered phase in which the molecules arrange in alternating rows, with two distinct appearances in STM(More)
The circular dichroism spectra of the tris-bidentate metal complexes Lambda-[M(phen)3]2+, with M = Fe, Ru, Os and phen = 1,10-tris-phenanthroline, are investigated computationally, employing time-dependent density functional theory. Good agreement with experimental spectra is obtained for Ru and Os. The Lambda-[Os(phen)3]2+ spectrum is analyzed in detail.(More)
The solubility of organic semiconductors in environmentally benign solvents is an important prerequisite for the widespread adoption of organic electronic appliances. Solubility can be determined by considering the cohesive forces in a liquid via Hansen solubility parameters (HSP). We report a numerical approach to determine the HSP of fullerenes using a(More)
