Modelling the two-dimensional polymerization of 1,4-benzene diboronic acid on a Ag surface
MetadataShow full item record
Modelling of the two-dimensional polymerization of 1,4-benzene diboronic acid molecules on the Ag(111) surface, which leads to the formation of a covalent organic framework, is reported. An estimation of free enthalpy is given that takes into account the constraints induced by the molecular adsorption on the surface. The various thermodynamic functions, enthalpies, entropies, and free enthalpies, are obtained from DFT calculations. The entropic effect of the surface plays an important role in the polymerization free energy. A germination threshold is obtained.

Relationship between surface concentration of l-leucine and bulk powder properties in spray dried formulationsMangal, S.; Meiser, F.; Tan, G.; Gengenbach, T.; Denman, J.; Rowles, Matthew; Larson, I.; Morton, D. (2015)The amino acid l-leucine has been demonstrated to act as a lubricant and improve the dispersibility of otherwise cohesive fine particles. It was hypothesized that optimum surface l-leucine concentration is necessary to ...
Novel Directional Blanket Covering Method for Surface Curvature Analysis at Different Scales and DirectionsPodsiadlo, Pawel; Wolski, Martin; Stachowiak, Gwidon (2017)The curvature of surface topography is quantified in this study using a newly developed directional blanket covering curvature (DBCC) method. The novel method addresses a long-standing problem of a measurement of a local ...
