Single and Double Clustering of Nitrogen to Li(+).

Pagination or Media Count:
The clustering of nitrogen molecules to positive lithium ions has been studied experimentally using a drift tube. Two cluster ions were observed, a lithium ion with one attached nitrogen molecule and a lithium ion with two attached nitrogen molecules. The rate coefficients for the reactions which lead to the formation and destruction of these cluster ions have been measured as a function of the translational energy of the ions. The mobilities of positive ions of lithium and of the cluster ions drifting in nitrogen were also measured. Author
