Associated Themes: Quantum Chemistry and Nanoparticles


Herein, the adsorption, diffusion and desorption of chlorine on and from stoichiometric, reduced and partially-reduced (defective) rutile TiO2{110} is investigated using ab-initio density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Theoretical results are compared to experimental investigations and microkinetic simulations based on DFT values are then used to verify the diffusion mechanisms assumed in those experimental investigations.
