Abstract [en]

The geometric and electronic structures of titanium fulleride complexes have been studied at the gradient corrected density-functional theory level by using various C60Tix (x=1,2) clusters. The cluster with the Ti atom binding on the six-ring site (eta (6)) Of the fullerene is shown to be lower in energy than those with Ti atom adsorbed on either five-ring (eta (5)) Or bridge(eta (2)) sites. The bond formation for titanium fulleride has further been examined by calculated nonresonant, resonant, and off-resonant . x-ray emission spectra of the clusters, and a comparison to the experimental counterpart. The examination shows that only the theoretical spectra of clusters with a six-ring adsorption site are in close agreement with the experimental x-ray emission spectra of titanium fulleride films. Our results indicate that off-resonant x-ray emission spectra provide an excellent basis for the probing of the bonding between metals and organic molecules.
