Relative Dissociation Energies of Singly and Doubly Charged Fullerene Ions
Relative activation energies for dissociation of fullerene ions Cnz+ into Cn−2z+ + C2 have been determined for z = 1 and 2, covering the size range 52 ≤ n ≤ 70. These data are derived from measured appearance energies of fragment ions, obtained by electron impact ionization of C70, with the help of the finite heat bath theory. The present results are compared with experimental and theoretical values for C2 loss reported in the literature.
