Description

We provide the input files to reproduce the data presented in the work: Hidden Beneath the Surface: Origin of the Observed Enantioselective Adsorption on PdGa(111) The files are subdivided in directories named after the figures/table of the manuscript A. V. Yakutovich, J. Hoja, D. Passerone, Alexandre Tkatchenko, C. A. Pignedoli J. Am. Chem. Soc., 140, 1401-1408 (2018) DOI: 10.1021/jacs.7b10980 In the work, we unravel the origin of the recently observed striking enantioselectivity of the PdGa(111) surface with respect to the adsorption of a small organic molecule, 9-ethynylphenanthrene, using first-principles calculations. It turns out that the key ingredient to understand the experimental evidence is the appropriate description of van der Waals interactions beyond the widely employed atomic pairwise approximation. A recently developed van der Waals-inclusive density functional method, which encompasses dielectric screening effects, reveals the origin of the experimentally observed enantioselectivity and provides conclusive evidence of chiral recognition on a bimetallic surface driven by dispersion interactions.
