The adsorption modes of inert CO2 on the (100) face of Cu(9,4,1) cluster model have been studies by the Slater DFT code of the Amsterdam density; functional (ADF) program. The side-on adsorption mode with near linear CO2 lying at the short bridge site has the highest binding energy of 26.31 kJ mol(-1). The binding energies of CO2 in similar geometry on the cross bridge, hollow, and on-top sites vary from 19.66 to 21.8 kJ mol(-1). The investigation also revealed that a number of CO2 bent modes with O-C-O angles equal to approximate to 150 degrees can coordinate with the surface with binding energies ranging from 9.66 to 23.56 kJ mol(-1). Further calculations indicated that to cause the CO2 molecule to bend to approximate to 150 degrees, there is negative charge transferred from the copper cluster to the CO2 molecule.
