Cobalt pentlandite (Co9S8)is the major source of cobalt. Of the several cobalt minerals, cobalt pentlandite is the most abundant and has the widest geographical distribution. This presentation looks at the computer simulation of Co9S8 structure using different computer simulation techniques, i.e. METADISE, VASP. These techniques have been employed to investigate the effect of molecular adsorption of water on the low-index surfaces of Co9S8
