Transition metal oxide cations of the form M n O m (+) (M = Y, La) are produced by laser vaporization in a pulsed nozzle source and detected with time-of-flight mass spectrometry. Cluster oxides for each value of n form only a limited number of stoichiometries; MO(M2O3)x(+) species are particularly intense. Cluster cations are mass selected and(More)
Gas-phase metal carbonyl cations of the vanadium-group metals (V(+), Nb(+), Ta(+)) were produced in a molecular beam by laser vaporization and then mass-analyzed and size-selected in a time-of-flight spectrometer and studied with IR laser photodissociation spectroscopy in the carbonyl-stretching region. The abundances in the mass spectra, the fragmentation(More)
Copper carbonyl cations of the form Cu(CO)(n)(+) (n = 1-8) are produced in a molecular beam via laser vaporization in a pulsed nozzle source. Mass-selected infrared photodissociation spectroscopy in the carbonyl stretching region is used to study these ions and their argon "tagged" analogues. The geometries and electronic states of these complexes are(More)
Chromium oxide cluster cations, Cr(n)O(m)+, are produced by laser vaporization in a pulsed nozzle cluster source and detected with time-of-flight mass spectrometry. The mass spectrum exhibits a limited number of stoichiometries for each value of n, where m > n. The cluster cations are mass selected and photodissociated using the second (532 nm) or third(More)
Manganese carbonyl cations of the form Mn(CO)(n)(+) (n = 1-9) are produced in a molecular beam by laser vaporization in a pulsed nozzle source. Mass selected infrared photodissociation spectroscopy in the carbonyl stretching region is used to study these complexes and their "argon-tagged" analogues. The geometries and electronic states of these complexes(More)
This work reports the long sought crystal structures of the title members of the intriguing series of 3d transition metal dichloride monohydrates. The double chain structure which results from rearrangement of the well-known pseudo-octahedral coordination geometry and single chains in the corresponding metal chloride dihydrate is extremely unusual.(More)
