Summary of "Hydrogen adsorption on two-dimensional germanene and its structural defects: an ab initio investigation."

Herein, the adsorption of hydrogen on pristine germanene was studied using ab initio calculations. By performing a converged density functional theory calculation, we have found the nearly degenerate nature of hydrogen at the top sites HT1 and HT2, among which HT1 is the most stable site. The adsorption of a hydrogen atom on germanene led to local structural changes in germanene. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study on the investigation of the localized surface curvature and zero-point energy of hydrogen for 2D germanene. Moreover, we demonstrated the properties of germanene defects via the four obtained defects: the Stone-Wales (55-77), divacancy (77-555-6), divacancy (555-7), and pentagon-heptagon linear (5-7) defect. The lowest formation energy of the pentagon-heptagon linear defect is shown for the first time in this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

NMR spectroscopy on small- to medium-size biological macromolecules. This is often used for structural investigation of proteins and nucleic acids, and often involves more than one isotope.

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)

Distinguishing three-dimensional structures characteristically formed by homologous protein sequences.

The process of generating three-dimensional images by electronic, photographic, or other methods. For example, three-dimensional images can be generated by assembling multiple tomographic images with the aid of a computer, while photographic 3-D images (HOLOGRAPHY) can be made by exposing film to the interference pattern created when two laser light sources shine on an object.

The degree of 3-dimensional shape similarity between proteins. It can be an indication of distant AMINO ACID SEQUENCE HOMOLOGY and used for rational DRUG DESIGN.
