Dissociative and non-dissociative adsorption dynamics of N(2) on Fe(110).
Summary of "Dissociative and non-dissociative adsorption dynamics of N(2) on Fe(110)."
We study the adsorption dynamics of N(2) on the Fe(110) surface. Classical molecular dynamics calculations are performed on top of a six-dimensional potential energy surface calculated within density functional theory. Our results show that N(2) dissociation on this surface is a highly activated process that takes place along a very narrow reaction path with an energy barrier of around 1.1 eV, which explains the measured low reactivity of this system. By incorporating energy exchange with the lattice in the dynamics, we also study the non-dissociative molecular adsorption process. From the analysis of the potential energy surface, we observe the presence of two distinct N(2) adsorption wells. Our dynamics calculations show that the relative population of these adsorption sites varies with the incident energy of the molecule and the surface temperature. We find an activation energy of around 150 meV that prevents molecular adsorption under thermal and hypothermal N(2) gas exposure of the surface. This finding is also consistent with the available experimental information.

Sudden temporary alterations in the normally integrative functions of consciousness.
Multiple Personality Disorder
A dissociative disorder in which the individual adopts two or more distinct personalities. Each personality is a fully integrated and complex unit with memories, behavior patterns and social friendships. Transition from one personality to another is sudden.
Intravenous anesthetics that induce a state of sedation, immobility, amnesia, and marked analgesia. Subjects may experience a strong feeling of dissociation from the environment. The condition produced is similar to NEUROLEPTANALGESIA, but is brought about by the administration of a single drug. (From Gilman et al., Goodman and Gilman's The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics, 8th ed)
A hallucinogen formerly used as a veterinary anesthetic, and briefly as a general anesthetic for humans. Phencyclidine is similar to KETAMINE in structure and in many of its effects. Like ketamine, it can produce a dissociative state. It exerts its pharmacological action through inhibition of NMDA receptors (RECEPTORS, N-METHYL-D-ASPARTATE). As a drug of abuse, it is known as PCP and Angel Dust.
Stress Disorders, Traumatic, Acute
A class of traumatic stress disorders that is characterized by the significant dissociative states seen immediately after overwhelming trauma. By definition it cannot last longer than 1 month, if it persists, a diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (STRESS DISORDERS, POST-TRAUMATIC) is more appropriate.
First principles total energy calculations have been performed to study the hydrogen sulfide (H2S) adsorption on silicane, an unusual one monolayer of Si(111) surface hydrogenated on both sides. The H...
Hydrogen dissociative chemisorption and desorption on small lowest energy Ni(n) clusters up to n = 13 as a function of H coverage was studied using density functional theory. H adsorption on the c...
We examined the influence of guilt on the relationship between dissociative tendencies and state dissociation during mirror-gazing in a non-clinical sample. Dissociative tendencies correlated with sta...
ABSTRACT: Dissociative identity disorder (DID), once considered rare, was frequently diagnosed during the 1980s and 1990s, after which interest declined. This is the trajectory of a medical fad. DID w...
Background: We present recommendations for revision of the diagnostic criteria for the Dissociative Disorders (DDs) for DSM-5. The periodic revision of the DSM provides an opportunity to revisit the a...

Our study aims at contributing to a valid appraisal of the magnitude of naltrexone efficacy as an antidissociative agent by using a double-blind randomized controlled trial.
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether naltrexone reduces the intensity and duration of flashbacks and dissociative states in patients with borderline personality disorder.
