Chemical Physics of Nanomaterials


Quantum-chemical semiempirical calculations were performed of the adsorption of fluorine and hydrogen atoms and molecules on the surface of single-layered carbon nanotubes with various diameters. Semiempirical quantum-chemical MNDO calculations were based on the model of a molecular cluster with boundary pseudoatoms. The energy characteristics of adsorption were determined. Changes in physical properties caused by the adsorption of atoms and diatomic molecules were analyzed.
