Title

Carbon Monoxide Clusters: Critical Size and Magic Numbers

Abstract

Fully resolved mass spectra of carbon monoxide clusters have been recorded in the size rangen≦320. Intensity anomalies in these spectra beyondn=135 are strikingly similar to those being observed in krypton and xenon spectra. Particularly pronounced intensity drops occur atn=147 and 309. For the first time, these data provide evidence for icosahedral structure in largemolecular cluster ions. Concerning doubly charged CO clusters, their lower size limit has been measured to ben c =98.
