DESALES GUZMAN, L.A.; PACHECO SANCHEZ, J.H.; GARCIA-ROSALES, G.  e  ISIDRO ORTEGA, F.J.. Modelling carbyne C12-ring calcium decorated for hydrogen storage. Rev. mex. fis. [online]. 2018, vol.64, n.6, pp.634-641.  Epub 05-Nov-2019. ISSN 0035-001X.

We computationally investigate the hydrogen storage properties of C 12 carbyne structure decorated with calcium (Ca) atoms adsorbed on its outer surface. The calculations are carried out on DFT-GGA-PW91 and DFT-GGA-PBE levels of theory as implemented in the modeling and simulation Materials Studio program. To account for the dispersion (van der Waals) interactions we also carry out calculations using DFT-D method of Grimme. Dmol 3 is used to calculate, total energies, charge density HOMO-LUMO and Mulliken population analysis. Based on these results, up to six H 2 molecules per Ca atom can be physisorbed with an average energy of 0.1890 eV (PW91) and 0.3204 (DFT-D) per H 2 molecule. This physisorption leads to 6.16 weight percentage (wt %) for the gravimetric hydrogen storage capacity. According to these results, the calcium-decorated carbyne C 12 structure is a good candidate for hydrogen storage with application to fuel cells.
