We have investigated Rb adsorption on the Si(100) surface for 0.5 and 1 monolayer coverages using the total energy method with norm-conserving pseudopotentials. For 2 x 1 reconstruction at 1 ML coverage symmetrized dimers are found to be energetically more favorable. On the other hand, half a ML coverage is found to have symmetrical dimers only for the most stable adsorption model. All possible surface-adatom configurations have been considered in the calculations to find which adsorption sites are energetically favored. In addition to the structural properties, the interface is investigated electronically for the work function and surface states. The results are discussed and compared with the existing experimental findings.

Electronic properties of five carbon nanotori (C-170, C-250, C-360, C-520, and C-750) have been investigated by performing Extended-Huckel type calculations. Carbon nanotori considered is of Fonseca type having five-fold symmetry. It has been found that highest occupied molecular orbital-lowest occupied molecular orbital gaps of nanotori considered are very small, thus they may contain mobile electrons; pentagons and heptagons in the knee-regions act as an electron trap; and all the nanotori have a DOS dist...
Atomic and electronic structure of group-IV adsorbates on the GaAs(001)-(1 x 2) surface

Ab initio calculations, based on pseudopotentials and density functional theory, have been performed to investigate the atomic and electronic structure of the group-IV adsorbates (C, Si, Ge, Sn, and Pb) on the GaAs(001)-(1 x 2) surface considered in two different models: (i) non-segregated Ga-IV-capped structure and (ii) segregated structure in which the group-IV atoms occupying the second layer while the As atom floats to the surface. The non-segregated structure is energetically more favorable than the se...
An ab initio study of 3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane molecule on Si(111)-(root 3 x root 3) surface
Demirel, G.; Birlik, G.; Cakmak, M.; Caykara, T.; Ellialtıoğlu, Süleyman Şinasi (Elsevier BV, 2007-09-15)
The chemisorption and reaction of 3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane (APTS) molecule on the Si(111)-(root 3 x root 3) surface are investigated by first principles density-functional calculations within the generalized gradient approximation. Before studying the chemisorption of APTS molecule on the surface, we have firstly put three-OH groups on the silicon surface, but considering six different locations for H and O atoms. Upon their relaxations, model 11, which is assumed to be crosswise for initial orientatio...
Atomic and electronic structure of Sr/Si(001)-(2 x 2)
Cakmak, M.; Mete, E.; Ellialtıoğlu, Süleyman Şinasi (Elsevier BV, 2006-09-15)
The adsorption of Sr on the Si(001) surface with the semiantiphase dimer (2 x 2) reconstruction is studied, based upon the ab initio pseudopotential calculations. It is calculated that the sermantiphase dimer (2 x 2) reconstruction (2 dimers per unit cell) is more favorable than the (2 x 1) phase (I dimer per unit cell) by an energy of about 0.24 eV/dimer. Considering the energetically more stable reconstruction, we have assumed four possible locations for 1/4 monolayer (ML) Sr adsorption on this surface: (...
In Situ Formed "Weakly Ligated/Labile Ligand" Iridium(0) Nanoparticles and Aggregates as Catalysts for the Complete Hydrogenation of Neat Benzene at Room Temperature and Mild Pressures

"Weakly ligated/labile ligand" nanoparticles, that is nanoparticles where only weakly coordinated ligands plus the desired catalytic reactants are present, are of fundamental interest. Described herein is a catalyst system for benzene hydrogenation to cyclohexane consisting of "weakly ligated/labile ligand" Ir(0) nanoparticles and aggregates plus dry-HCl formed formed in situ from commercially available [(1,5-COD)IrCl](2) plus 40 +/- 1 psig (similar to 2.7 atm) H(2) at 22 +/- 0.1 degrees C. Multiple control...
