Numerical treatment discussion and ab initio computational reinvestigation of physisorption of molecular hydrogen on graphene

The Journal of Chemical Physics

A numerical treatment suitable for the computational investigation of physisorption of molecular hydrogen on carbon nanostructures has not been sufficiently discussed. In this paper it is shown that results used as a reference are actually a product of poorly solved interactions and contaminated estimates with errors which would be of the order of 60%. Moreover, using ab initio molecular orbital theory, under the rigid monomer supermolecular approach, the physisorption energy of molecular hydrogen on graphene was reinvestigated. The graphene surface was modeled as a coronenelike (C(24)H(12)) graphene sheet. The basis set superposition error was corrected by means of the counterpoise method. The H(2)-H(2) and H(2)-benzene interactions were examined, under systematic combinations of basis sets and correlation methods, including the aug-cc-pVQZ basis set and the coupled cluster correlation method with single, double, and noniterative triple excitations, searching for a numerical treatment with a reasonable trade-off between efficiency and accuracy. Asymmetrical modeling strategies, using diffusion augmented basis sets with preference for the adsorbate, were found to be effective. Also local modeling strategies, using more complete...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
