We present a density functional theory investigation of the adsorption properties of NO and NO2 as well as SO2 and SO3 on BaO and Pt overlayers on anatase TiO2(001) surface. Mono layers, bilayers, and trilayers of BaO grow without strain-induced large scale reconstructions. While the bilayer and trilayer preserve, to a large extent, the NO2 adsorption characteristics of the clean BaO(100) surface, the effect of the support is evident in SO2 and SO3 adsorption energies, which are somewhat reduced with respect to the clean BaO(100) surface. When a Pt(100) layer is added on the TiO2 surface, four stable adsorption geometries are identified in the case of NO while NO2 is found to adsorb in only two configurations.

Among the class of ABO(3)-type perovskite oxides, LaMO3 (M=Ga and In) compounds are investigated in cubic (Pm-3m), tetragonal (P4mm), hexagonal (P-3m1), rhombohedral (R-3c) and orthorhombic (Pbnm) phases using generalised gradient approximation (GGA) within the density functional theory. On-site Coulomb interaction is also included in the calculations (GGA+U). After the determination of the stable phase, phase transition pressures have also been calculated. Then, their full structural, mechanical, electroni...
A quantum chemical study of nitric oxide reduction by ammonia (SCR reaction) on V2O5 catalyst surface
Soyer, Sezen; Uzun, Alper; Senkan, Selim; Önal, Işık (2006-12-15)
The reaction mechanism for the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of nitric oxide by ammonia on (010) V2O5 surface represented by a V2O9H8 cluster was simulated by means of density functional theory (DFT) calculations performed at B3LYP/6-31G** level. The computations indicated that SCR reaction consisted of three main parts. For the first part, ammonia activation on V2O5 was investigated. Ammonia was adsorbed on Bronsted acidic V-OH site as NH4+ species by a non-activated process with an exothermic relati...

The first-principles calculations based on Density Functional Theory (DFT) within generalized gradient approximation (GGA) of Engel-Vosko-Perdew-Wang and modified exact exchange potential of Becke-Johnson have been introduced for the structural and electronic properties of the ScxAl1-xN alloys, respectively. The present lattice constants calculated for the ScAlN alloys and the end compounds (AlN and ScN) are found to be in very good agreement with the available experimental and theoretical ones. The stable ...
First-Principles Study on the MAX Phases Tin+1GaNn (n=1,2, and 3)
Sürücü, Gökhan; Colakoglu, Kemal; Deligoz, Engin; Korozlu, Nurettin (2016-08-01)
We have performed first-principles density functional theory calculations within generalized-gradient approximation to obtain the structural, mechanical, electronic, and dynamic properties of Tin+1GaNn compounds. In order to examine the stability of these compounds, formation enthalpies, single-crystal elastic constants, and phonon dispersion curves were calculated. We show that all compounds are stable, while alpha-Ti4GaN3 is the most stable. The density of states calculations also demonstrate that all of ...
A van der Waals DFT study of chain length dependence of alkanethiol adsorption on Au(111): physisorption vs. chemisorption
Mete, Ersen; Yortanli, Merve; Danışman, Mehmet Fatih (2017-06-07)
The energetics and structures of physisorbed and chemisorbed alkanethiols on Au(111) have been systematically investigated up to 10 carbon atoms using van der Waals (vdW) corrected density functional theory (DFT) calculations. The role of chain length, tilting angle and coverage on the adsorption characteristics has been examined to elucidate the energetics and plausible transformation mechanisms between lying down and standing up phases. Coverage and size dependent chain-chain electronic interactions count...
