Türker, Lemi
Polynitrogen compounds, comprising only nitrogen atoms, are rare. They are considered as promising candidates of clean (green) high energy density materials because of their high energy content and their sole decomposition product is N2. Extending the previous work which was on cyclic N8 isomers, in this study some cyclic N10 isomers having 1e4 cycles are considered within the limitations of density functional theory at the levels of B3LYP/6-311þþG(d,p) and B3LYP/cc-PVTZ. Some of the structures, including the monocyclic one, decompose by eliminating certain number of N2 units while some remain intact. All the stable isomers (1e3, 6e8) investigated presently are highly endothermic that they are candidates for clean high energy materials. Certain quantum chemical properties, IR and UV-VIS spectra as well as the specific impulse values for the stable structures are reported.

Contemplation on Some Prismatic Polynitrogen Structures - A DFT Treatment
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Wiley, 2019-10-14)
Polynitrogen compounds, are rare molecules having only nitrogen atoms. In recent years, they have been considered as promising candidates of clean (green) high energy density materials. They possess high energy content and their sole decomposition product is N-2. Presently some prismatic polynitrogen structures (N-6 - N-14) are considered within the limitations of density functional theory at the levels of B3LYP/6-311++G(d,p) and B3LYP/cc-PVTZ. The calculations reveal that they are all highly endothermic bu...
A Combinatorial study on hydrogen separation membranes
Pişkin, Fatih; Öztürk, Tayfur; Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering (2018)
Metallic membranes among the hydrogen separation membranes are quite attractive due to their very high hydrogen selectivity and hydrogen permeability. The efforts in metallic membranes generally concentrate on to identify membrane compositions which have a high hydrogen permeability with a reduced cost. Among the metallic membranes, Pd and Pd alloys, i.e. f.c.c. membranes are quite common as separation membranes. However, the high cost of Pd limits its widespread use in industrial applications. The efforts ...
A joint density functional and classical molecular dynamics study on interface characteristics of graphene and polyetheretherketone
Sert, Elif; Toffoli, Hande; Department of Physics (2020-10-9)
Graphene is a single layer allotrope of carbon with a honeycomb arrangement of atoms, characterized by excellent mechanical properties such as high tensile strength, high Young’s modulus as well as desirable electrical properties such as high electron mobility. Due to these superior properties, it is considered an important material in numerous technological applications. Among these, graphene-polymer composites have attracted significant interest in the materials research community in recent years. T...
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...
A DFT study on CO oxidation on Pd-4 and Rh-4 clusters and adsorbed Pd and Rh atoms on CeO2 and Ce(0.75)Z(r0.25)O(2) supports for TWC applications
Gerceker, Duygu; Önal, Işık (2013-11-15)
CO oxidation reaction mechanisms and energetics are examined on adsorbed Pd-4 and Rh-4 clusters and adsorbed Pd and Rh atoms on CeO2 and Ce0.75Zr0.25 O-2 support structures using DFT methods. Activation barriers and TS structures are computed with CI-NEB method. On cluster adsorbed systems, Zr affects CO binding position and O-2 adsorption mode. Energetically, formation of two CO2 molecules without barrier and surface regeneration is possible only on Pd-4-CeO2 surface. With metal atom substituted surfaces, ...
