Abstract  The geometric configurations, vibrational frequencies of Pdn(n=1-7) clusters and their interactions with a CH4 molecule were studied using the DFT/B3LYP method. Increasing the total number of palladium atoms made the cluster less size-dependent and structural parameters approach to the bulk solid. Methane adsorption on Pdn(n=1-7) clusters was very weak. Methane was activated by Pd2 cluseter, activation and adsorption energy were aggrandized. With increasing cluster size, the interaction of molecular-surface in PdnCH4 (n=1,3-7) clusters became weak, and the adsorption energy approached to that on the bulk metal.
