Abstract: The molecular geometries optimization and electronic structures of diphenyl disulfide (DPDS) and dibenzyl disulfide (DBDS) compounds were investigated by density functional theory (DFT) and ab initio method at the 6-31G basis set level. The active atoms and bonds of reaction were provided by frontier molecular orbital theory. The molecular orbital parameters of DPDS and DBDS compounds and iron atom cluster were calculated by using density functional theory. The interaction pattern between the organic disulfide compounds and iron atom cluster was discussed based on the approximate rule of orbital energy. Some parameters characterizing the action strength between the organic disulfide compounds and iron atom cluster, including the bonding strength, reactive strength and static action strength, were analyzed by using frontier electron density, super de-localizability, net atomic charge and the interaction energy of chemical adsorption as criteria. The results indicate that S-S chemical bond and C-S chemical bond of the compounds are inclined to be broken when DPDS and DBDS interact with the metal. The antiwear ability order of DPDS and DBDS compounds is DPDS>DBDS, and the extreme pressure ability order of DPDS and DBDS compounds is DBDS>DPDS, and the prediction results based on quantum chemistry calculations are in good accordance with the friction and wear test results.
