The study of the organic solar cells (OSC)[1]has received increasing attention due to its low cost and compatibility with the present well developed technologies[2]. NiO is good anode interlayer candidate owing to its wide band gap and p-type character[3]. By forming self assembled monolayers of certain organic molecules, e.g. 4-cyano-phenyl phosphonic acid (CYNOPPA) on the NiO surface, can further modify the energy-level alignment between the semiconducting organic/inorganic interfaces, which is critical for efficient charge separation and significantly affects the open-circuit voltage as well[4].

In the present study, first-principles calculations are performed for different neat and SAMs modified hydroxylated and reconstructed NiO(111) surfaces. The related electronic and optoelectronic properties, e.g. band gaps, density of states, work functions, XPS and IR spectrums are compared with each other and with the experimental results. The corresponding dehydration mechanism between the CYNOPPA and NiO(111) hydroxylated surface is also studied with ab initio molecular dynamics.
