The magnetic and spin dependent transport properties of asymmetrically hydrogenated zigzag graphene nanoribbons, which are C–H2 bonded at one edge while C–H bonded at the other, are investigated from first-principles calculations. Due to their special distributions of the density of states near Fermi level, a perfect (100%) spin filtering effect can be achieved in such graphene nanoribbons through p-type or n-type doping. Moreover, a negative differential resistance effect is observed in both doping case, which results from the reducing of conductance near Fermi level with increasing bias voltage.
