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.

Thermal decomposition of polystyrene-b-poly(2-vinylpyridine) coordinated to co nanoparticles
Elmaci, Ayşegül; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Kayran, Ceyhan; Sakellariou, Georgios; Hadjichristidis, Nikos (2009-11-01)
Direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry analyses of polystyrene-block-poly(2-vinylpyridne), PS-b-P2VP, indicated that the thermal degradation of each component occurred independently through the decomposition pathways proposed for the corresponding homopolymers; depolymerization for PS and depolymerization and loss of protonated oligomers for P2VP by a more complex degradation mechanism. On the other hand, upon coordination to cobalt nanoparticles, thermal decomposition of the P2VP blocks was initiated by loss o...
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...
Magnetic transitions in two novel mixed-valence iron(II)–iron(III) metal formate frameworks: Two sublattice model
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Tari, O. (2022-03-15)
We study the two-sublattice model in the mean field theory by expanding the Gibbs free energy in terms of the magnetizations M1 (Mup) and M2 (Mdown) with the quadratic coupling M12M22 (quadrupolar interactions) for the order–disorder transition in the two mixed-valence iron (II)-iron (III) metal formate frameworks, C2H5NH3FeIIFeIIIHCOO6 and C2H52NH2FeIIFeIIIHCOO6. Expressions derived from the Gibbs free energy for the temperature dependence of the magnetizations M1 and M2, are fitted to the observed data (H...
Optoelectrochemical properties of the copolymer of 2,5-di(4-methylthiophen-2-yl)-1-(4-nitrophenyl)-1H-pyrrole monomer with 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene
AK, Metin; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Akhmedo, Dris M.; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2008-04-30)
Copolymer of 2,5-di(4-methylthiophen-2-yl)-1-(4-nitrophenyl)-1H-pyrrole (MTNP) with 3,4-ethylene dioxythiophene (EDOT) was electro-chemically synthesized and characterized via cyclic voltammetry, Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy, conductivity measurements. Spectroelectrochemical investigations showed that resulting copolymer film has distinct electrochromic properties. It has five different colors (dark purple, red, light grey, green, blue). At the neutral state m due to...
Electronic properties of transition metal oxides
Mete, Ersen; Ellialtıoğlu, Süleyman Şinasi; Department of Physics (2003)
Transition metal oxides constitute a large class of materials with variety of very interesting properties and important technological utility. A subset with perovskite structure has been the subject matter of the current theoretical investigation with an emphasis on their electronic and structural behavior. An analytical and a computational method are used to calculate physical entities like lattice parameters, bulk moduli, band structures, density of electronic states and charge density distributions for v...
