Abstract
First-principles calculations have been applied to investigate the role of Ni-doping in modifying the geometric and electronic structures of Cu-n clusters (n = 1-12), and the chemical activity of clusters towards CO2. The results reveal that Ni-doping introduces a significant modulation of the electronic structures, such as the density of states. HOMO-LUMO gaps and the d-band centers, which dominate their chemical activities towards CO2 adsorption. Our findings contribute valuable information for high efficient Cu-Ni alloy nano-catalyst design. (c) 10 Published by Elsevier B.V.
