When concentrated solutions of NaI in formamide with electrical conductivities K larger than 1.1 S/m are electrosprayed from a Taylor cone-jet in a vacuum, ions are evaporated at substantial rates from the surface of the meniscus and the drops. This constitutes a new source of ions and nanoparticles, where the relative importance of these two contributions is adjustable. The currents of ions are measured independently from those associated with drops by a combination of stopping voltage… CONTINUE READING
