MIT Open Access Articles
The MIT Open Access Articles collection consists of scholarly articles written by MIT-affiliated authors that are made available through DSpace@MIT under the MIT Faculty Open Access Policy, or under related publisher agreements. Articles in this collection generally reflect changes made during peer-review.
Version details are supplied for each paper in the collection:
- Original manuscript: author's manuscript prior to formal peer review
- Author's final manuscript: final author's manuscript post peer review, without publisher's formatting or copy editing
- Final published version: final published article, as it appeared in a journal, conference proceedings, or other formally published context (this version appears here only if allowable under publisher's policy)
Some peer-reviewed scholarly articles are available through other DSpace@MIT collections, such as those for departments, labs, and centers.
(International Desalination Association, 2019-10)To counteract the effects of fouling, desalination plant operators ultimately resort to chemical cleaning, which incurs system downtime, risk of membrane damage, and the generation of chemical waste. Driven by these limitations, ...
Stable Surfaces That Bind Too Tightly: Can Range-Separated Hybrids or DFT+U Improve Paradoxical Descriptions of Surface Chemistry? (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2019-08)Approximate, semilocal density functional theory (DFT) suffers from delocalization error that can lead to a paradoxical model of catalytic surfaces that both overbind adsorbates yet are also too stable. We investigate the ...
Correct Symmetry Treatment for X + X Reactions Prevents Large Errors in Predicted Isotope Enrichment (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2019-03)Confusion over how to account for symmetry numbers when reactants are identical can cause significant errors in isotopic studies. An extraneous factor of 2 in the reaction symmetry number, as proposed in the literature, ...
