The unimolecular dissociation pathways and kinetics of a series of protonated trimer ions consisting of two organic bases and trifluoroacetic acid were investigated using blackbody infrared radiative dissociation. Five bases with gas-phase basicities (GB) ranging from 238.4 to 246.2 kcal/mol were used. Both the dissociation pathways and the threshold dissociation energies depend on the GB of the base. Trimers consisting of the two most basic molecules dissociate to form protonated base monomers… CONTINUE READING
