Adsorption and dehydrogenation of acetylene have been theoretically studied on [M(SiH3)(4)AlO4] and [(M-(mu-O)-M)Si6Al2O9H14] (where M = Co, Fe, Ni, and V) clusters representing ZSM-5 zeolite. Adsorption and dehydrogenation of acetylene were performed as an initial step of carbon nanotube synthesis by using Density Functional Theory calculations with utilization of B3LYP formalism. If activities of different clusters are compared, M-(mu-O)-M-ZSM5 clusters show better performance than the M-ZSM5 clusters for acetylene activation. Activation barriers of Ni-(mu-O)-Ni-ZSM5 and Co-(mu-O)-Co-ZSM5 clusters are lower than those of other ZSM-5 clusters. It can be therefore concluded that Ni-(mu-O)-Ni-ZSM5 and Co-(mu-O)-Co-ZSM5 catalysts can be used for H removal from acetylene as an initial step for carbon nanotube production.

Trans-dinitroglycoluril isomers-A DFT treatment
Türker, Burhan Lemi (2017-02-01)
Isomers of trans-1,4-Dinitroglycoluril (trans-DINGU) and their 1,3-tautomers are considered within the constraints of B3LYP/6-31++ G (d, p) and B3LYP/CC-PVTZ levels of DFT calculations. Additionally, the interactions of these isomers and proton in vacuum are investigated. The data have revealed that two of the three isomers undergo C-H bond cleavage as the result of interaction with proton in vacuum. The total energies, some structural properties, the calculated IR and UV spectra are discussed. (C) 2017 The...
C-H bond activation of methane on M- and MO-ZSM-5 (M = Ag, Au, Cu, Rh and Ru) clusters: A density functional theory study
Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Önal, Işık (2011-08-10)
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were carried out in a study of C-H bond activation of methane on [(SiH3)(4)AlO4(M, MO)] (where M = Ag, Au, Cu, Rh and Ru) cluster models representing ZSM-5 surfaces. The following activity order of clusters with respect to their activation barriers could be qualitatively classified: Au >> Rh > Cu = Ru > Ag for metal-ZSM-5 clusters and Ag > Cu > Au >> Rh > Ru for Metal-O-ZSM-5 clusters. Therefore, activation barriers based on transition state calculations showed t...
Activation of light alkanes on pure and Fe and Al doped silica clusters: A density functional and ONIOM study
Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Önal, Işık (2007-01-01)
C-H bond activation was studied by use of density functional theory (DFT) and ONIOM calculations as implemented in Gaussian 2003 at the B3LYP level utilising 6-31G* as the basis set for Si, Al, and Fe atoms and 3-21G** as the basis set for O and H atoms. Relative energy profiles were determined for pure silica modeled by a Si7O21 cluster and Fe and Al doped silica clusters via coordinate driving calculations. The activation barriers for C-H bond activation of methane and ethane decrease with the substitutio...
Density functional theory for molecular multiphoton ionization in the perturbative regime
Toffolı, Danıele; Decleva, Piero (2012-10-07)
A general implementation of the lowest nonvanishing order perturbation theory for the calculation of molecular multiphoton ionization cross sections is proposed in the framework of density functional theory. Bound and scattering wave functions are expanded in a multicentric basis set and advantage is taken of the full molecular point group symmetry, thus enabling the application of the formalism to medium-size molecules. Multiphoton ionization cross sections and angular asymmetry parameters have been calcul...
Density functional theory calculations for [C2H4N2O6]((n)) (n=0,+1,-1)
Turker, Lemi; Erkoç, Şakir (Elsevier BV, 2006-08-21)
The structural and electronic properties of neutral and mono ionic structures of isolated ethylene glycol dinitrate (EGDN) [C2H4N2O6]((n)) (n = 0, +1, -1) have been investigated by performing density functional theory calculations at B3LYP level. The optimum geometry, vibrational frequencies, electronic structure and some thermo dynamical values of the structures considered have been obtained in their ground states. The calculations reveal that as the charge develops the bond lengths and angles change. In t...
