Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We have performed ab initio studies to understand the electronic and geometric aspects of the Pd-CO bond in small carbonyl clusters and the CO covered (2×1)p2mg superstructure of the Pd(110) surface. We have used the standard quantum chemistry package Gaussian to study the former system and an LDA formalism using ab initio pseudopotentials and a plane wave basis to study the latter. The latter results are preliminary; we intend to study thicker slabs in the future.
