Abstract

The ability of metal adsorption to transfer charge to the surface of single molecular carbon sheets is explored in this paper. Though other metals are considered we basically will deal with Lithium We concentrate on fairly small sheets and examined the minimum threshold size of a molecular surface needed to separate metals. From our quantum chemical calculations we deduce that a molecular surface of six benzene rings is needed for Lithium dimers to be separated. We further observe symmetry breaking, when two lithium atoms are adsorbed right opposite to each other on the two sides of the sheet.
