Hence the Si-O and C-C bonds exhibit a qualitatively different rupture behaviour while they have comparable bond strenghts. This affects the consecutive reactions: the ionic fragments react quickly with neighbouring chains. Due to this mechanism a crack propagates rapidly. Movie 1 shows the tearing of a siloxane chain from a silica surface. In movie 2 , four siloxane chains under mechanical stress are shown. Motivated by single molecule AFM experiments, we are investigating chemical reactions induced by pulling a disulfide with first principles simulations.
Both in the presence reduction and in the absence simple bond rupture of the reducing agent dithiothreitol, we investigate the force to break the disulfide bond. The relevant localized orbitals are depicted in short movies.
Movie 3 shows the disulfide in the absence of solvent and reducing agent, movie 4 shows the disulfide in ammonia and in the presence of dithiothreitol. Hypergolic mixtures are compounds that react spontaneously when brought into contact with one another. This characteristic is deployed e. Complications in the upper stage procedure emerged during a mission to transport two satellites into space in July A possible reason for this could be undesired reactions in the bipropellant.
The proton transfers are shown in movies 1 and 2 which present a timeframe of two picoseconds. The first electron transfer of this sequence is shown in movie 3 2. The movie shows the reaction of liquid air with aluminium. The oxygen molecules red react readily with the surface while the nitrogen molecules remain inactive. The reaction is known as being highly exothermic and a large amount of energy is released each time an oxygen molecule reacts with the surface.
The oxygen molecules separate into atoms which stick strongly to the surface at an average distance of roughly 4 Angstrom. Finally also the one water molecule contained in the simulation box reacts with a surface oxygen atom to yield two hydroxyl groups. At that point, the surface is already close to melting, as the energy is not removed from the simulation box.
While the oxygen atoms are strongly bonded to the surrounding aluminium atoms, the underlying metal surface is ductile and allows for some mobility of the surface aluminium oxide islands.
8.2.1 Spectroscopic Methods
The electrolysis of water is a prime example of an electrolytic reaction. Water is decomposed into H 2 and O 2 by an electric current between two electrodes. Understanding the reaction mechanism at the atomic level gives insight into the basic concepts of electrochemical reactivity. We focus on the reactions in pure water without explicit consideration of the electrode surfaces.

Our simulations illustrate the single reaction steps starting from the discharged solutions to the formation of the reaction products. Movie 1 Depicted are the spin densities. We have implemented a sinusoidal potential which may change in phase and amplitude.
In first applications electron transfer and ion migration are modeled. Car and M.
