Abstract

Multi-atom vacancies and pores in diamond-structured carbon phases play an important role in carbon sieves and carbon based storage. The size and shape of pores have a profound effect on the energetics of adsorptive storage. We are modeling large numbers of vacancy configurations with a combination of ab initio density functional theory (DFT), tight binding DFT and simpler methods based on Brenner-potentials and modified Brenner potentials. The more accurate calculations serve as the basis of the parametrization which is then used in lattice Monte Carlo simulations on more complex vacancies. The results will be put in the context of SiC-derived porous carbon materials with the purpose to explore basic questions of energetics in porous carbons.
