  • Here a series of novel alkanolamine-based ionic liquids show a highly efficient and excellent reversible capture of CO 2 through multidentate cation coordination between alkanolamine and Li + ion in a quasi-aza-crown ether fashion.
  • A practical numerical method for finding the magnetohydrodynamic equilibria of minimum magnetic energy subject to certain constraints is described. The constraints may be those of ideal magnetohydrodynamics or the constraint of constant local ..mu.. suggested by Taylor. No assumptions of symmetries are necessary to use the method. Examples of the method for finding Taylor states are described, and the potential of the method for simulation of plasma dynamics is discussed.
  • Transition state searches have been employed to investigate the migration mechanisms of W clusters on W nanoparticles, and to determine the corresponding migration energies for the possible migration paths of these clusters. The tungsten clusters containing up to four adatoms are found to prefer 2D-compact structures with relatively low binding energies. The effect of interface and vertex regions on the migration behavior of the clusters is significantly strong, as compared to that of nanoparticle size. The migration mechanisms are quite different when the clusters are located at the center of the nanoparticle and near the interface or vertex areas. Nearmore » the interfaces and vertex areas, the substrate atoms tend to participate in the migration processes of the clusters, and can join the adatoms to form a larger cluster or lead to the dissociation of a cluster via the exchange mechanism, which results in the adatom crossing the facets. The lowest energy paths are used to be determined the energy barriers for W cluster migrations (from 1- to 4-atoms) on the facets, edges and vertex regions. The calculated energy barriers for the trimers suggest that the concerted migration is more probable than the successive jumping of a single adatom in the clusters. In addition, it of interest to note that the dimer shearing is a dominant migration mechanism for the tetramer, but needs to overcome a relatively higher migration energy than other clusters.« less
  • The potential energy surface for the reaction H+O/sub 2/..-->..HO/sup *//sub 2/ ..-->..HO+O has been characterized in the vicinity of the minimum energy path using CASSCF/contracted CI calculations with a basis set which is triple zeta valence quality plus three sets of polarization functions. CASSCF/CI calculations were carried out along the CCI minimum energy path. The latter calculation shows essentially no barrier for addition of an H atom to O/sub 2/, in agreement with predictions made in earlier studies. The potential surface for recombination of OH and O is complicated by a crossing, at r/sub OO/ approx. =5.5a/sub 0/, between themore » surface for electrostatic (OH dipole--O quadrupole) interaction and that for the formation of an O--O chemical bond. This surface crossing results in a small (approx. =0.5 kcal/mol) barrier.« less
