13.The spin-unpolarized DFT calculations were performed using the ultrasoft pseudopotential plane-wave method with the generalized gradient approximation (GGA-PW91) coded in DACAPO. The wave-functions were expanded in plane-waves with an energy cutoff of 450 eV. The alloy surfaces were modeled by a slab separated by 10 Å of vacuum space. The adsorbates and top two layers were allowed to relax until the total force on the atoms was less than 0.05 eV/Å. In the surface unit cell, Monkhorst–Pack -points were used for the Brillouin-zone integration. Convergence of the results with respect to various calculation parameters was verified in all cases.

We show that there is a family of adsorbate-substrate systems that do not follow the trends in adsorption energies predicted by the -band model. A physically transparent model is used to analyze this phenomenon. We found that these adsorbate-substrate pairs are characterized by the repulsive interaction of the substrate -band with the renormalized adsorbate states. The exceptions to the -band model are mainly associated with the adsorbates having almost completely filled valence shell, and the substrates with nearly fully occupied -band, e.g., OH, F, or Cl adsorption on metals and alloys characterized by or substrate surface atoms.
