We investigated the decomposition and (partial) oxidation of methanol on Pd based catalysts in an integrated attempt, simultaneously bridging both the pressure and the materials gap. Combined studies were performed on well-defined Pd model catalysts based on ordered Al(2)O(3) and Fe(3)O(4) thin films, on well-defined particles supported on powders and on Pd(More)
We evaluated the accuracy of periodic density functional calculations for adsorption enthalpies of water, alkanes, and alcohols in silicalite and HZSM-5 zeolites using a gradient-corrected density functional with empirical dispersion corrections (PBE-D) as well as a nonlocal correlation functional (vdW-DF2). Results of both approaches agree in acceptable(More)
The application of High Performance Computing to Quantum Chemical (QC) calculations faces many challenges. A central step is the solution of the generalized eigenvalue problem of a Hamilton matrix. Although in many cases its execution time is small relative to other numerical tasks, its complexity of O(N 3) is higher, thus more significant in larger(More)
