The present work investigates both the diffusivity and permeability of hydrogen (H) in palladium-silver (PdAg) and palladium-gold (PdAu) alloys over a 400-1200 K temperature range for Pd(100-X)M(X), M=Ag or Au and X=0%-48% using density functional theory (DFT) and kinetic Monte Carlo simulations (KMC). DFT has been employed to obtain octahedral (O)-,(More)
The present work deals with the study of palladium-silver (PdAg) and palladium-gold (PdAu) binary alloys over a broad range of temperatures and alloy compositions using density functional theory (DFT) to find possible conditions where the solubility of hydrogen (H) is significantly higher than that of pure palladium (Pd). Several alloy structures, such as(More)
SBA-15 is a novel porous material with uniform size mesopores arranged in a regular pattern. The adjacent mesopores are connected to each other by microporous walls. The major disadvantages of these materials are that the walls are amorphous and have low thermal, hydrothermal, and mechanical stability. Recently, there have been a few attempts to either coat(More)
The surface area of MCM-41 mesoporous silica, estimated by several models in the literature, is significantly less than the value derived from BET analysis of nitrogen adsorption at 77.4 K. In the past, the difference has been attributed to several reasons including the errors involved in the BET analysis of the multilayer-capillary condensation region and(More)
In the present manuscript, we have presented the simulation of nanoporous aluminum oxide using a molecular-dynamics approach with recently developed dynamic charge transfer potential using serial/parallel programming techniques (Streitz and Mintmire Phys. Rev. B 1994, 50, 11996). The structures resembling recently invented ordered nanoporous crystalline(More)
The present work provides the first study of ordered mesoporous materials SBA-15 coated with microporous zeolites ZSM-5 using molecular simulations. Several model structures with characteristics such as periodic arrangement of mesopores, randomly arranged micropores, surface hydroxyls and bulk deformations of SBA-15 were used. Cartesian coordinates of ZSM-5(More)
