Structural features and formation kinetics of CnDm- cluster ions
- 化学化工－已发表论文 
By laser ablating of anthracene-d(10) sample, various CnDm- and C-n(-) cluster anions were generated. The distribution suggests that the structural configuration and stability of the clusters varied with the number of deuterium atoms and the parity of number of carbons. With growing size of the clusters, their structural configuration changes from chain to monocycle, and further to polycycle. The analysis of the distribution also reveals the formation kinetics of the clusters.
