First-principles calculations of hybrid inorganic-organic interfaces: From state-of-the-art to best practice

First-principles calculations of hybrid inorganic-organic interfaces: From state-of-the-art to best practice

Oliver T. Hofmann, Egbert Zojer, Lukas Hörmann, Andreas Jeindl, and R. J. Maurer, Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. 23, 8132-8180 (2021)

"In this review, we discuss how to choose appropriate atomistic representations for the simulation of hybrid inorganic-organic interfaces. We provide tips and tricks on how to efficiently converge the self-consistent field cycle and to obtain accurate geometries. We particularly focus on potentially unexpected pitfalls and the errors they incur. As a summary, we provide a list of best practice rules for interface simulations that should especially serve as a useful starting point for less experienced users and newcomers to the field."

Adhesion, forces and the stability of interfaces

Adhesion, forces and the stability of interfaces

Robin Guttmann, Johannes Hoja, Christoph Lechner, Reinhard J. Maurer, and Alexander F. Sax, Beilstein J. Org. Chem., 15, 106–129. (2019)

"Weak molecular interactions (WMI) are responsible for processes such as physisorption; they are essential for the structure and stability of interfaces, and for bulk properties of liquids and molecular crystals. For a long time, dispersion was largely ignored in chemistry, attractive intermolecular interactions were nearly exclusively attributed to electrostatic interactions. We discuss the importance of dispersion interactions for the stabilization in systems that are traditionally explained in terms of the “special interactions” mentioned above."

Structure and Stability of Molecular Crystals with Many Body Dispersion Inclusive Density Functional Tight Binding

Structure and Stability of Molecular Crystals with Many Body Dispersion Inclusive Density Functional Tight Binding

Majid Mortazavi, Jan Gerit Brandenburg, Reinhard J. Maurer, Alexandre Tkatchenko, J. Phys. Chem. Lett. 9, 399-405 (2018)

"We show the ability of many-body-dispersion-inclusive tight-binding methodology to accurately predict the structure of polymorphic organic molecular crystals."


Charge-Population Based Dispersion Interactions for Molecules and Materials

Charge-Population Based Dispersion Interactions for Molecules and Materials

Martin Stöhr, Georg S. Michelitsch, John C. Tully, Karsten Reuter, Reinhard J. Maurer, J. Chem. Phys., 144, 151101 (2016)

A simple correlation between atomic polarizability and hybridization enables us to couple semi-empirical electronic structure methods with electron density-derived dispersion correction methods.
