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 favorable than molecular adsorption of ammonia (-37.17 kcal/mol vs. -23.28 kcal/mol). The vibration frequency values also are computed for the optimized geometries of adsorbed water and ammonia molecules on anatase TiO2 (001) surface. The computed adsorption energy and vibration frequency values are comparable with the values reported in the literature. Finally, several thermodynamical properties (Delta H degrees, Delta S degrees, and Delta G degrees) are calculated for temperatures corresponding to the experimental studies.

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...
A periodic DFT study of water and ammonia adsorption on anatase TiO2 (001) slab
Erdogan, Rezan; Ozbek, Olus; Önal, Işık (2010-06-15)
Water and ammonia adsorption mechanisms on anatase TiO2 (001) slab surface are investigated by means of periodic DFT approach. Molecular and dissociative adsorption energies for water are calculated to be -15 kcal/mol and -32 kcal/mol, respectively. Similarly, molecular and dissociative adsorption energies of ammonia on the same surface are found as 25 kcal/mol and 20 kcal/mol. A reverse result in this order is reached for the previous case of ONIOM cluster study (23 kcal/mol and 37 kcal/mol, respectively)....
Adsorption of water and ammonia on TiO2-anatase cluster models
Önal, Işık; Senkan, Selim (2006-06-15)
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 s...
A density functional theory study of propylene epoxidation on RuO2(110) surface
Atmaca, Deniz Onay; Duzenli, Derya; Ozbek, M. Olus; Önal, Işık (2016-11-01)
Propylene epoxidation is investigated on RuO2(110) and oxygen added RuO2-O-ot(110) surfaces by periodic DFT computational method. The desired product propylene oxide (PO) as well as the undesired products acetone (AC) or propionaldehyde (PA) form on both surfaces through either surface intermediate oxometallopropylene (OMMP) or direct oxygen insertion mechanisms. On RuO2(110) surface, nucleophilic lattice oxygen at bridge position (O-br) favors the stable surface intermediate mechanism where high energy req...
A density functional theory study of oxidation of benzene to phenol by N2O on Fe- and Co-ZSM-5 clusters
Fellah, Mehmet Ferdi; Önal, Işık (2009-06-01)
Density functional theory (DFT) calculations were carried out in the study of oxidation of benzene to phenol by N2O on relaxed [(SiH3)(4)AlO4M] (where M=Fe, Co) cluster models representing Fe- and Co-ZSM-5 surfaces. The catalytic cycle steps are completed for both Fe-ZSM-5 and Co-ZSM-5 clusters. The general trend of the results that were obtained in terms of activation barriers for the Fe-ZSM-5 cluster is in agreement with the experimental and theoretical literature. It was observed that the phenol formatio...
