We present a new scheme to include the van der Waals (vdW) interactions in approximated Density Functional Theory (DFT) by combining the quantum harmonic oscillator model with the maximally localized Wannier function technique. With respect to the recently developed DFT/vdW-WF2 method, also based on Wannier Functions, the new approach is more general, being(More)
Hydrosilylation provides a route to form substituted silanes in solution. A similar reaction has been observed in the formation of covalent organic monolayers on a hydrogen-terminated silicon surface and is called thermal hydrosilylation. In solution, the mechanism requires a catalyst to add the basal silicon and saturating hydrogen to the C=C double bond.(More)
