This paper presents the results of quantum chemical modeling of chemisorption of atomic hydrogen and epoxy, carboxyl, and hydroxyl functional groups on nitrogen-doped graphene. It is shown that the substitutional nitrogen atom does not bind to adsorbing groups directly, but significantly increases the adsorption activity of neighboring carbon atoms. Mechanical stretching of doped graphene reduces the adsorption energy of all the aforementioned radicals. This reduction is significantly greater for the epoxy group than for the other functional groups. The results obtained confirm that, upon a sufficient stretching of a nitrogen-doped graphene sheet, the dissociation of molecular hydrogen and oxygen with subsequent precipitation of the resulting radicals onto graphene can be energetically favorable.
