Nanoscale Molecular Surface Electron Solvation
Abstract:We will consider the ability of nanoscale molecular surfaces (around 2 nm in width) in trapping excess electrons when reacted with hydrogen fluoride (HF). From a previously reported set of molecular surfaces, we suggested that molecular surfaces with hydrogen bonding networks (consisting of OH groups) on one side of the surface and hydrogen atoms on the opposite side were capable of forming stable dipole-bound anions. This increase in the dipole moments caused by the OH groups and the partial positive charge of the hydrogen atoms creates charge pockets that are can trap excess electrons. In the present work we consider HF solvation of excess electrons on extended molecular surfaces.
