Abstract: The effects of nitrogenation on single-walled carbon nanotubes are investigated within the ab initio density functional theory. Four different types of nitrogenation have been considered: (i) direct substitution of nitrogen atoms, (ii) substitution with a formation of vacancy (pyridinelike doping), (iii) exohedral chemisorption of N adatoms, and (iv) sidewall covalent - N H2 functionalization. Structural deformations, electronic band structures, density of states, and ionization potential energies are calculated and compared among the different types of nitrogenated nanotubes. Magnetism is observed for chemisorbed single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) with magnetic moment of 0.7 μB. In addition, the relaxed structures of SWNTs with two neighboring chemisorbed N adatoms are generally more complex than those of singly chemisorbed N adatom. The barrier energies needed to coalesce two N adatoms chemisorbed on SWNTs to form a free N2 molecule are higher than those for a graphene sheet. © 2007 The American Physical Society.
