    Two-reagent reactions of Ni[sub 19] and Ni[sub 23] with hydrogen/deuterium and ammonia are studied to probe adsorbate-induced cluster structural changes. H/D and NH[sub 3] bind to the clusters noncompetitively, i.e., to different sites, so simultaneous saturation by the two reagents can be...

    We have carried out ab initio simulations on the ambient pressure phase I of solid ammonia, and on the high-pressure phase IV. Our plane-wave pseudopotential calculations yield very good agreement with existing structural data, lattice energies, and equations of state. We have also studied the...

    The interactions between condensed H[SUB2]O, NH[SUB3], and HCOOH molecules have been investigated on the basis of secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). The protonated molecular ions are created during energetic collisions of hydrogen-bonded neutral molecules as a consequence of proton transfer...

    The ammonia dimer (NH[sub 3])[sub 2] has been investigated using high-level ab initio quantum chemistry methods and density functional theory. The structure and energetics of important isomers are obtained to unprecedented accuracy without resorting to experiment. The global minimum of eclipsed...

    The redox (chemical and electrochemical) properties of several hydroquinones are reported in which the OH protons are engaged in intramolecular hydrogen bonds to a nitrogen-based acceptor (pyridine or amine). The 1,4-hydroquinones generally undergo reversible oxidation to quinones in which both...

    Helium droplet technique has been used in order to measure the strength of the infrared absorption in small ammonia and water clusters as a function of size. Hydrogen bonding in ammonia and water dimers causes an enhancement of the intensity of the hydrogen stretching bands by a factor of four...
