A DFT Study of Si Doped Graphene: Adsorption of Formaldehyde and Acetaldehyde
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, Si doped graphene sensor property for indoor volatile contaminants formaldehyde and acetaldehyde has been examined. The B3LYP hybrid method with 6-31G(d,p) basis set has been used for this purpose. The adsorption energy of formaldehyde and acetaldehyde have been found to be -24.5 and -33.3 kcal/mol, respectively. The characteristic C=O bond frequency has been decreased after adsorption of the molecules and the bond peaks frequencies have been decreased in both aldehydes. There was a charge transfer from adsorbent to formaldehyde oppositely from acetaldehyde to adsorbent.
