The adsorption of thiolates on Au surfaces employing density-functional-theory calculations has been studied. The dissociative chemisorption of dimethyl disulfide (CH3S−SCH3) on 14 different Au(hkl) is used as a model system. We discuss trends on adsorption energies, bond lengths, and bond angles as the surface structure changes, considering every possible Au(hkl) with h, k, l ≤ 3 plus the kinked Au(421). Methanethiolate (CH3S-) prefers adsorption on bridge sites on all surfaces considered; hollow and on top sites are highly unfavourable. The interface tensions for Au(hkl)-thiolate interfaces is determined at low coverage. Using the interface tensions in a Wulff construction method, we construct atomistic models for the equilibrium shape of large thiolate-covered gold nanoparticles. Gold atoms in a nanoparticle change their equilibrium positions upon adsorption of thiolates towards shapes of higher sphericity and higher concentration of step-edge atoms.

A Self-Consistent Charge Density-Functional Tight-Binding Parameterization for Pt-Ru Alloys Shi, Hongbo; Koskinen, Pekka; Ramasubramaniam, Ashwin (American Chemical Society, 2017)We present a self-consistent charge density-functional tight-binding (SCC-DFTB) parametrization for PtRu alloys, which is developed by employing a training set of alloy cluster energies and forces obtained from Kohn–Sham ...
Merging Features from Green's Functions and Time Dependent Density Functional Theory : A Route to the Description of Correlated Materials out of Equilibrium? Hopjan, M.; Karlsson, Daniel; Ydman, S.; Verdozzi, C.; Almbladh, C.-O. (American Physical Society, 2016)We propose a description of nonequilibrium systems via a simple protocol that combines exchangecorrelation potentials from density functional theory with self-energies of many-body perturbation theory. The approach, aimed ...
Dipolar coupling of nanoparticle-molecule assemblies : an efficient approach for studying strong coupling Fojt, Jakub; Rossi, Tuomas P.; Antosiewicz, Tomasz J.; Kuisma, Mikael; Erhart, Paul (American Institute of Physics, 2021)Strong light–matter interactions facilitate not only emerging applications in quantum and non-linear optics but also modifications of properties of materials. In particular, the latter possibility has spurred the development ...
Approximate energy functionals for one-body reduced density matrix functional theory from many-body perturbation theory Giesbertz, Klaas J. H.; Uimonen, Anna-Maija; van Leeuwen, Robert (Springer, 2018)We develop a systematic approach to construct energy functionals of the one-particle reduced density matrix (1RDM) for equilibrium systems at finite temperature. The starting point of our formulation is the grand potential ...
