Periodic density functional theory (DFT) calculations using plane waves have been performed to systematically investigate the adsorption and relative stability of ammonia and its dehydrogenated species on Pt(111) and Pt(100) surfaces. Different adsorption geometries and positions have been studied, and in each case, the equilibrium configuration has been(More)
An extensive study of the redox properties of metal nitride endohedral fullerenes (MNEFs) based on DFT computational calculations has been performed. The electronic structure of the singly oxidized and reduced MNEFs has been thoroughly analyzed and the first anodic and cathodic potentials, as well as the electrochemical gaps, have been predicted for a large(More)
The hydrogenation of 1,3-butadiene to different C4H8 species on both Pd(111) and Pt(111) surfaces has been studied by means of periodic slabs and DFT. We report the adsorption structures for the various mono- and dihydrogenated butadiene intermediates adsorbed on both metal surfaces. Radical species are more clearly stabilized on Pt than on Pd. The(More)
Understanding the interaction between charged species and surfaces is one of the most challenging topics in chemistry, given its wide involvement in several fields such as electrocatalysis, stabilization of metal nanoparticles, preparation of devices, etc. In general, these systems are particularly complex to model because of the elevated number of factors(More)
We have studied the adsorption properties of a charge donor organic molecule, tetrathiafulvalene (TTF), on the (110) surfaces of silver and gold by means of the generalized gradient approach of the density functional theory using periodic slab models. This molecule is the core building block of a host of molecular materials exhibiting extremely reach phase(More)
We have studied the adsorption properties of propyne on the Rh(111) surface by means of the generalized gradient approach of density functional theory using periodic slab models. The simulation of the vibrational spectra has permitted us to corroborate and complete the experimental band assignment and to confirm the adsorption site preference. Propyne(More)
The adsorption of a polyoxometalate (POM) on a metal surface has been studied by means of a periodic plane wave DFT based method for the first time. In particular, we have analysed the most favourable adsorption sites of anion [SiW(12)O(40)](4-) on the Ag(111) surface and computed the infrared spectrum. Despite the intrinsic complexity of the system we have(More)
