Abstract [en]

Despite the industrial importance of copper oxides, the nature of the (100) surface of Cu2O has remained poorly understood. The surface has previously been subject to several theoretical and experimental studies, but has until now not been investigated by atomically resolved microscopy or high-resolution photoelectron spectroscopy. Here we determine the atomic structure and electronic properties of Cu2O(100) by a combination of multiple experimental techniques and simulations within the framework of density functional theory (DFT). Low-energy electron diffraction (LEED) and scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) characterized the three ordered surface structures found. From DFT calculations, the structures are found to be energetically ordered as (3,0;1,1), c(2 x 2), and (1 x 1) under ultrahigh vacuum conditions. Increased oxygen pressures induce the formation of an oxygen terminated (1 x 1) surface structure. The most common termination of Cu2O(100) has previously been described by a (3 root 2 x root 2)R45 degrees unit cell exhibiting a LEED pattern with several missing spots. Through atomically resolved STM, we show that this structure instead is described by the matrix (3,0;1,1). Both simulated STM images and calculated photoemission core level shifts compare favorably with the experimental results.

Abstract [en]

Metal and metal oxides are widely used in industry, and to optimize their performance their surfaces are commonly functionalized by the formation of thin films. Self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) are deposited on metals or metal oxides either from solution or by gas deposition. Thiols with polar terminal groups are utilized for creating the responsive surfaces which can interact electrostatically with other adsorbates. Surface charge effects wetting and adhesion, and many other surface properties. Polar terminal groups in thiols could be used to modify these factors. Mixed SAMs can provide more flexible surfaces, and could change the resulting surface properties under the influence of factors such as pH, temperature, and photo-illumination. Therefore, in order to control these phenomena by mixed polar-terminated thiols, it is necessary to understand the composition and conformation of the mixed SAMs and their response to these factors. In this work, mixtures of thiols with carboxylic and amino terminal groups were studied. Carboxylic and amino terminal groups of thiol interact with each other via hydrogen bonding in solution and form a complex. Complexes adsorb to the surface in non-conventional orientations. Unmixed SAMs from each type, either carboxylic terminated thiols or amino terminated thiols are in standing up orientation while SAMs from complexes are in an axially in-plane orientation. Selenol is an alternative to replace thiols for particular applications such as contact with biological matter which has a better compatibility with selenol than sulfur. However, the    Se-C bond is weaker than the S-C bond which limits the application of selenol. Understanding the selenol adsorption mechanism on gold surfaces could shed some light on Se-C cleavage and so is investigated in this work. Se-C cleavage happens in the low coverage areas on the step since atoms at steps have lower coordination making them more reactive than atoms on the terraces.  Another area where the self-assembly of molecules is of importance is for dye sensitized solar cells, which are based on the adsorption of the dye onto metal oxides surfaces such as TiO2.The interface between the SAM of dye and the substrate is an important factor to consider when designing dyes and surfaces in dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). The quality of the self-assembled monolayers of the dye on the TiO2 surface has a critical influence on the efficiency of the DSSCs.  Creation of just a monolayer of dye on the surface could lead to an efficient current of photo-excited electrons to the TiO2 and degeneration of the dye by redox. This work, T-PAC dye showed island growth with some ad-layer that is not in contact with the surface, whereas the MP13 dye adsorption is laminar growth.  Cuprite (Cu2O) is the initial and most common corrosion product for copper under atmospheric conditions. Copper could be a good replacement for noble metal as catalysts for methanol dehydrogenation. Knowledge about the structure of Cu2O(100) and Cu2O(111) surfaces could be used to obtain a deeper understanding of methanol dehydrogenation mechanisms with respect to adsorption sites on the surfaces. In this work, a detailed study was done of Cu2O(100) surface which revealed the possible surface structures as the result of different preparation conditions. Studies of the structure of Cu2O(100) and Cu2O(111) surfaces show that Cu2O(100) has a comparatively stable surface and reduces surface reactivity. As a consequence, dehydrogenation of methanol is more efficient on the Cu2O(111) surface. The hydrogen produced from methanol dehydrogenation is stored in oxygen adatom sites on both surfaces.

Abstract [en]

Metal oxides are both corrosion products and useful materials with a wide range of applications. Two of the most used metals today are iron and copper. In this thesis, surface structures and molecular interaction with surfaces of iron oxides and copper oxides are studied using spectroscopy and microscopy methods.

 

The surface structures of iron oxides grown on the low-index iron (Fe) surfaces (100) and (110) have been studied during the initial oxidation phase. The oxidation condition for both iron surfaces was 400 °C and 1×10−6 mbar of oxygen gas. For the Fe(100)-surface, a Fe3O4(100)-film is formed beyond the oxygen adsorbate structures. For the Fe(110)-surface, a FeO(111)-film is first formed. When the FeO(111)-film grows thicker, it transforms into a Fe3O4(111)-film.

 

The surface structures of Cu2O(100) was studied and the main finding is that the most common surface structure that previously in literature has been described to have a periodicity of (3√2×√2)R45° actually has a periodicity described by the matrix (3,0;1,1). Furthermore, the low-binding energy component in the photoelectron spectroscopy O 1s-spectrum is determined to origin from surface oxygen atoms.

 

Sulfur dioxide, a corrosive molecule that in the environment to large share comes from human activities such as burning of fossil fuels, was studied using photoelectron spectroscopy when interacting with surfaces of iron oxide thin films and bulk Cu2O-surfaces. On the iron oxide thin film surfaces under ultra-high vacuum conditions, sulfur dioxide adsorbs partly as SO4-species and partly dissociates and forms FeS2. On the Cu2O-surfaces under ultra-high vacuum conditions, the adsorption of sulfur dioxide is non-dissociative and forms SO3-species. When interacting with near-ambient pressures of water, it is observed in the photoelectron spectroscopy S 2p-region that the sulfur from SO3-species shifts to Cu2S.

Abstract [en]

The chemical bond – a corner stone in science and a prerequisite for life – is the focus of this thesis. Fundamental and applied aspects of chemical bonding are covered including the development of new computational methods for the characterization and rationalization of chemical interactions. The thesis also covers the study of corrosion of copper-based materials. The latter is motivated by the proposed use of copper as encapsulating material for spent nuclear fuel in Sweden.

In close collaboration with experimental groups, state-of-the-art computational methods were employed for the study of chemistry at the atomic scale. First, oxidation of nanoparticulate copper was examined in anoxic aqueous media in order to better understand the copper-water thermodynamics in relation to the corrosion of copper material under oxygen free conditions. With a similar ambition, the water-cuprite interface was investigated with regards to its chemical composition and reactivity. This was compared to the behavior of methanol and hydrogen sulfide at the cuprite surface.

An overall ambition during the development of computational methods for the analysis of chemical bonding was to bridge the gap between molecular and materials chemistry. Theory and results are thus presented and applied in both a molecular and a solid-state framework. A new property, the local electron attachment energy, for the characterization of a compound’s local electrophilicity was introduced. Together with the surface electrostatic potential, the new property predicts and rationalizes regioselectivity and trends of molecular reactions, and interactions on metal and oxide nanoparticles and extended surfaces.

Detailed atomistic understanding of chemical processes is a prerequisite for the efficient development of chemistry. We therefore envisage that the results of this thesis will find widespread use in areas such as heterogeneous catalysis, drug discovery, and nanotechnology.

Abstract [sv]

Den kemiska bindningen – en hörnsten inom naturvetenskapen och oumbärlig för allt liv – är det centrala temat i den här avhandlingen. Både grundläggande och tillämpade aspekter behandlas. Detta inkluderar utvecklingen av nya beräkningsmetoder för förståelse och karaktärisering av kemiska interaktioner. Dessutom behandlas korrosion av kopparbaserade material. Det sistnämnda är motiverat av förslaget att använda koppar som inkapslingsmaterial för hanteringen av kärnavfall i Sverige.

Kvantkemiska beräkningsmetoder enligt state-of-the-art har använts för att studera kemi på atomnivå, detta i nära sammabete med experimentella grupper. Initialt studerades oxidation av kopparnanopartiklar under syrgasfria och vattenrika förhållanden. Detta för att bättre kartlägga koppar-vattensystemets termodynamik. Av samma orsak detaljstuderades även gränsskiktet mellan vatten och kuprit med fokus på dess kemiska sammansättning och reaktivitet. Resultaten har jämförts med metanols och vätesulfids kemiska beteende på ytan av kuprit.

En övergripande målsättningen under arbetet med att utveckla nya beräkningsbaserade analysverktyg för kemiska bindningar har varit att överbrygga gapet mellan molekylär- och materialkemi. Därför presenteras teoretiska aspekter samt tillämpningar från både ett molekylärt samt ett fast-fas perspektiv. En ny deskriptor för karaktärisering av föreningars lokala elektrofilicitet har introducerats – den lokala elektronadditionsenergin. Tillsammans med den elektrostatiska potentialen uppvisar den nya deskriptorn förmåga att förutsäga samt förklara regioselektivitet och trender för molekylära reaktioner, och för interaktioner på metal- och oxidbaserade nanopartiklar och ytor.

En detaljerad förståelse av kemiska processer på atomnivå är en nödvändighet för ett effektivt utvecklande av kemivetenskapen. Vi förutspår därför att resultaten från den här avhandlingen kommer att få omfattande användning inom områden som heterogen katalys, läkemedelsdesign och nanoteknologi.
