Interaction between two hydrogen adatoms on graphene was studied by first-principles calculations. We showed that there is an attraction between two H adatoms on graphene. However, the strength of interaction between two hydrogen adatoms and magnetic properties of graphene are strongly dependent on the residence of the two adatoms on the graphene sublattices. Hydrogen adatoms introduce lattice distortion and electron localization in graphene which mediate the attractive interaction between the two H adatoms. (c) 2018 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
