    The results of calculations on the electronic and geometrical structure of the CFnClm and CFnClm- series, n+m=3 and 4, are used for estimating the vertical (EAvert) and adiabatic (EAad) electron affinities of the neutral species and fragmentation energies of the upper decay channels. The...

    Abstract??To calculate the solvation of hydrophobic solutes, we have developed a method based on the fundamental measure treatment of density functional theory. This method allows us to carry out calculations of density profiles and the solvation energy for various hydrophobic molecules with...

    The reactivity of different carbon-nitride structures has been studied using density functional theory calculations. The studies involve C[sub 59]N and clusters of curved and planar CN[sub x] structures. Nitrogen is shown to lower the energy of pentagon defects in the graphite like structures,...

    Vacancy plays a crucial role in mechanical properties of transition metal borides (TMBs). However, the influence of vacancy on hardness of TMBs is unknown. In this paper, the relationship between boron vacancy and mechanical properties of CrB4 is investigated by first-principle calculations. Two...

    We report the results of a first principles study on the clean and the reduced CrO2(100) surface. It is shown that both surfaces retain the half-metallicity because they share a common feature: the surface Cr atom also behaves like an isolated ion. Thus, the half-metallicity of the CrO2 surfaces...

    The structural, electronic, and magnetic properties of the binary and ternary carbides (Fe,Cr)3C and (Fe,Cr)7C3 have been investigated within the ab initio density functional theory. The crystal structure of the binary carbides has been optimized and the preferred positions for replacement of...

    The hydrolysis mechanism of CS was studied using density functional theory. By analyzing the structures of the reactant, transition states, intermediates, and products, it can be concluded that the hydrolysis of CS occurs via two mechanisms, one of which is a two-step mechanism (CS first reacts...

    The density-functional theory is used to predict the existence of new carbon structures consisting of C60 fullerenes connected by linear carbon chains with different numbers of atoms. The stability and the electronic structure of 1D, 2D, and 3D forms of these structures are studied. It is shown...
