Density functional theory (DFT) calculations performed at B3LYP/6-31G** level are employed to study water and ammonia adsorption and dissociation on (101) and (001) TiO2 anatase surfaces both represented by totally fixed and partially relaxed Ti2O9H10 cluster models. PM3 semiempirical calculations were also conducted both on Ti2O9H10 and Ti9O33H30 clusters in order to assess the effect of cluster size. Following dissociation, the adsorption of H2O and NH3 by H-bonding on previously H2O and NH3 dissociated systems, respectively are also considered. It is found that the adsorption energies and geometries of water and ammonia molecules on (101) and (001) anatase cluster models depend on surface relaxation. The vibration frequency values are also calculated for the optimized geometries. The adsorption energies and vibration frequency values computed are compared with the available theoretical and experimental literature.

An ONIOM and DFT Study of Water and Ammonia Adsorption on Anatase TiO2 (001) Cluster
Erdogan, Rezan; Önal, Işık (2011-08-05)
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations at ONIOM DFT B3LYP/6-31G**-MD/UFF level are employed to study molecular and dissociative water and ammonia adsorption on anatase TiO2 (001) surface represented by partially relaxed Ti20O35 ONIOM cluster. DFT calculations indicate that water molecule is dissociated on anatase TiO2 (001) surface by a nonactivated process with an exothermic relative energy difference of 58.12 kcal/mol. Dissociation of ammonia molecule on the same surface is energetically more favora...
Epoxidation of Propylene on a [Ag14O9] Cluster Representing Ag2O (001) Surface: A Density Functional Theory Study
Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Önal, Işık (2012-01-01)
Density functional theory calculations were employed to study partial oxidation of propylene on a [Ag14O9] cluster representing Ag2O (001) surface for which positive effect for ethylene oxide formation has been reported in our earlier work at the same level of theory (Fellah et al., Catal Lett 141: 762, 2011). Propylene oxide (PO), propanal, acetone and G-allyl radical formation reaction mechanisms were investigated. P-allyl formation path and two propylene adsorption paths resulting in PO formation are com...
Surface energy and excess charge in (1x2)-reconstructed rutile TiO2(110) from DFT plus U calculations
Unal, Hatice; METE, ERSEN; Ellialtıoğlu, Süleyman Şinasi (2011-09-09)
Physically reasonable electronic structures of reconstructed rutile TiO2(110)-(1x2) surfaces were studied using density functional theory (DFT) supplemented with Hubbard U on-site Coulomb repulsion acting on the d electrons, the so called DFT + U approach. Two leading reconstruction models proposed by Onishi and Iwasawa [Surf. Sci. Lett. 313, 783 (1994)] and Park and coworkers [Phys. Rev. B 75, 245415 (2007)] were compared in terms of their thermodynamic stabilities.
An ONIOM and DFT Study of Water Adsorption on Rutile TiO2 (110) Cluster
Erdogan, Rezan; Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Önal, Işık (2011-01-01)
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations performed at ONIOM DFT B3LYP/6-31G**-MD/UFF level are employed to study molecular and dissociative water adsorption on rutile TiO2 (110) surface represented by partially relaxed Ti25O37 ONIOM cluster. DFT calculations indicate that dissociative water adsorption is not favorable because of high activation barrier (23.2 kcal/mol). The adsorption energy and vibration frequency of both molecularly and dissociatively adsorbed water molecule on rutile TiO2 (110) surfac...
Epoxidation of Ethylene by Silver Oxide (Ag2O) Cluster: A Density Functional Theory Study
Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; van Santen, Rutger A.; Önal, Işık (2011-06-01)
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were employed to study epoxidation of ethylene on a [Ag14O9] cluster model representing silver oxide (001) surface. Theoretical results obtained in this study showed that formation paths of acetaldehyde and vinyl alcohol have higher activation barriers than that of ethylene oxide formation path on silver oxide (35 and 35 vs. 20 kcal/mol). Formation of the ethylene oxometallocycle intermediate is found to have a low probability on Ag2O(001) surface. The essential ...
