Abstract:

Fourier transform mass spectrometry FTMS has been employed to study the gas-phase production, dissociation, and reactivity of several transition metal cluster systems. In particular, the production of molybdenum oxide cluster ions by secondary ion mass spectrometry SIMS and laser vaporization LV have been compared. In addition, silver and copper cluster ions have been produced and the reactivities of M sub X, x 1-5, with a variety of small molecules have been probed. Unusual size-related cluster ion reactions have been observed in these studies. Silver clusters, Copper clusters, Molybdenum oxide clusters.
