Bulk Metallic System Modeling of Metal Hydride Dimer and Trimer Nanoclusters
Abstract:An artificial neural network (ANN) has been used to predict the experimental values of: entropy, enthalpy, hydriding temperature at one atmosphere of pressure, hydriding pressure at 25 °C, plateau slope, and percent weight of hydrogen reversibly adsorbed/absorbed and desorbed for metal hydrides. Computational modeling methods, using density functional theory (DFT), calculated the minimum energy, dipole moment, nuclear repulsion energy, as well as the energies of the HOMOs and LUMOs of the metal clusters of interest. The predicted ANN values were compared to the experimental data. As additional experimental data is added to the input, the network tends to converge to a correct prediction for most of the properties evaluated. However, as additional experimental data is not always available, our best results were found for the percent weight of hydrogen stored for metal nanoclusters using only DFT parameters.
