Results of a detailed study on electron interactions with nitromethane (CH(3)NO(2)) embedded in helium nanodroplets are reported. Anionic and cationic products formed are analysed by mass spectrometry. When the doped helium droplets are irradiated with low-energy electrons of about 2 eV kinetic energy, exclusively parent cluster anions (CH(3)NO(2))(n)(-)(More)
We report gas phase studies on NCO(-) fragment formation from the nucleobases thymine and uracil and their N-site methylated derivatives upon dissociative electron attachment (DEA) and through electron transfer in potassium collisions. For comparison, the NCO(-) production in metastable decay of the nucleobases after deprotonation in matrix assisted laser(More)
RATIONALE Low-energy secondary electrons are formed when energetic particles interact with matter. High-energy electrons or ions are used to form metallic structures from adsorbed organometallic molecules like W(CO)(6) on surfaces. We investigated low-energy electron attachment to W(CO)(6) in the gas phase to elucidate possible reactions during surface(More)
Aminoacetonitrile (NH2CH2CN, AAN) is a molecule relevant for interstellar chemistry and the chemical evolution of life. It is a very important molecule in the Strecker diagram explaining the formation of amino acids. In the present investigation, dissociative electron attachment to NH2CN was studied in a crossed electron-molecular beams experiment in the(More)
In the present study, dissociative electron attachment (DEA) measurements with gas phase HMX, octahydro-1,3,5,7-tetranitro-1,3,5,7-tetrazocine, C4H8N8O8, have been performed by means of a crossed electron-molecular beam experiment. The most intense signals are observed at 46 and 176 u and assigned to NO2(-) and C3H6N5O4(-), respectively. Anion efficiency(More)
