Abstract: We report combined first-principle and tight-binding (TB) calculations to simulate the effects of chemical edge modifications on structural and electronic properties. The C-C bond lengths and bond angles near the graphene nanoribbon (GNR) edge have considerable changes when edge carbon atoms are bounded to different atoms. By introducing a phenomenological hopping parameter t1 for nearest-neighbor hopping to represent various chemical edge modifications, we investigated the electronic structural changes of nanoribbons with different widths based on the tight-binding scheme. Theoretical results show that addends can change the band structures of armchair GNRs and even result in observable metal-to-insulator transition.
