Title: Nuclear quantum effects on adsorption of H 2 and isotopologues on metal ions

Abstract

The nuclear quantum effects on the zero-point energy (ZPE), influencing adsorption of H$$_2$$ and isotopologues on metal ions, are examined in this study using normal mode analysis of ab initio electronic structure results for complexes with 17 metal cations. To estimate for the anharmonicity, a nuclear wavepacket dynamics on the ground state electronic potential energy surfaces (PES) have been employed for complexes of Li$^+$ and Cu$$^{+2}$$ with H$$_2$$, D$$_2$$, HD. The dynamics analysis shows that incorporation of the PES anharmonicity changes the ZPE by up to 9%. Finally, the lightest metallic nuclei, Li and Be, are found to be the most 'quantum'. The largest selectivity in adsorption is predicted for Cu, Ni and Co ions.
