Quantum mechanical calculations on FeOH nanoparticles

Kubicki, James D., Aryanpour, Masoud, Kabalan, L. and Zhu, Q. 2012. Quantum mechanical calculations on FeOH nanoparticles. Geoderma 189-19 , pp. 236-242. 10.1016/j.geoderma.2012.05.016

Density functional theory calculations were performed on Fesingle bondOsingle bondH nanoparticles based on the goethite and a proposed ferrihydrite structures. Both molecular cluster and a periodic boundary condition approaches were applied and the resulting structures compared to the bulk values and to the other computational method. Reaction energies for Al3 +-substitution into each nanoparticle were calculated. The implications of these results for ferrihydrite and goethite nucleation and the ferrihydrite to goethite phase transition are discussed.
