To determine the concentrations of jet engine pollutants in the stratosphere, it is necessary to obtain information concerning the molecular clustering characteristics of pollutant species. In the present investigation, a simulation of jet engine exhaust emissions has been accomplished by expanding various gaswater mixtures from a molecular beam source and mass analyzing the resulting molecular beam. It was found possible to produce ionic clusters containing various combinations of N2, CO2, SO2, CH4, and H2O.
