These optimized electronic structures are part of our nature catalysis publication where we have studied the reaction mechanism path of NH3 formation from gaseous N2 and H2 via Li4RuH6 catalyst. Our study shows that adsorption and hydrogenation of N2 to NH3 on Li4RuH6 catalyst happens through associative mechanism in 13 reaction steps (Step-0 to Step-12).
