  1. 1. Structural Properties of Palladium-Manganese Alloys

    Author : Alexander J Jaworowski; Lunds universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; transition metal; structure; growth; adsorption; core level photoemission. scanning tunneling microscopy; fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy; Manganese; Palladium; Rhodium; Molybdenum; NO; CO; alloy; O; Physics; Fysik; Semiconductory physics; Halvledarfysik; Fysicumarkivet A:2001:Jaworowski;

    Abstract : Structural properties of adsorbed overlayers on well-defined single crystals and of Palladium-Manganese surface alloys formed on Pd(100) have been investigated using synchrotron-based photoemission, scanning tunneling microscopy and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy. The experimental valence electronic structure of PdMn systems on Pd(100) is compared to density functional calculations (DFT). READ MORE

  2. 2. Manganese and Iron Heterodimers and Homodimers in Enzymes : Insights from Density Functional Theory

    Author : Katarina Roos; Per Siegbahn; Margareta R. A. Blomberg; Frank Neese; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ribonucleotide reductase; manganese; iron; density functional theory; kemisk fysik; Chemical Physics;

    Abstract : The enzyme ribonucleotide reductase (RNR) catalyzes the reduction of ribonucleotides to deoxyribonucleotides, the building blocks of DNA, and is essential for all organisms. Canonical class I RNR R2 proteins use a diiron cofactor to generate a tyrosyl radical, which is required for catalysis. READ MORE

  3. 3. Electron Transfer in Ruthenium-Manganese Complexes for Artificial Photosynthesis : Studies in Solution and on Electrode Surfaces

    Author : Malin L. A. Abrahamsson; Gerald J. Meyer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Physics; Artificial photosynthesis; electron transfer; energy transfer; ruthenium; manganese; titanium dioxide; Fysik; Physics; Fysik; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : In today’s society there is an increasing need for energy, an increase which for the most part is supplied by the use of fossil fuels. Fossil fuel resources are limited and their use has harmful effects on the environment, therefore the development of technologies that produce clean energy sources is very appealing. READ MORE

  5. 5. Possibilities and Challenges of Using Combined Manganese Oxides as Oxygen Carriers

    Author : Malin Hanning; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; carbon capture; combined oxides; manganese oxides; oxygen carriers; manganese ores; chemical-looping combustion;

    Abstract : One alternative proposed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is carbon capture and storage, where the carbon dioxide emitted from large point sources is captured, compressed and stored in underground geological formations. Many of the largest point sources of carbon dioxide are power plants and industries fuelled by fossil fuels or biomass. READ MORE
