Production of Non-Stoichiometric SF6 Cluster Anions by Electron Attachment to SF6 Clusters
We report here on the detection of (SF6)n·X− (X = SF5, SF4, SF3) ions which form by electron attachment to SF6 clusters in a molecular beam. The formation of some species, e.g. SF6·SF−5 with resonances at 6 and 10 eV, is unexpected because attachment to the bare SF6 molecule does not yield the analogous monomer fragment ion in this energy range.
