The adsorption of ethylene molecule on neutral, anionic and cationic gold clusters consisting of up to 10 atoms has been investigated using density-functional theory. It is demonstrated that C 2 H 4 can be adsorbed on small gold clusters in two different configurations, corresponding to the π-and di-σ-bonded species. Adsorption in the π-bonded mode(More)
It is demonstrated that electrochemical hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) proceeds very efficiently at Au electrode, an inert substrate for HER, modified with BNNS, an insulator. This combination has been reported to be an efficient electrocatalyst for oxygen reduction reaction. Higher efficiency is achieved by using the size controlled BNNS (<1 μm) for the(More)
