Gas-phase reactions of bare and oxo-ligated actinide and lanthanide cations with pentamethylcyclopentadiene studied in a quadrupole ion trap mass spectrometer


Reactions of bare and oxo-ligated monopositive ions of uranium and thorium with 1,2,3,4,5-pentamethylcyclopentadiene, C10H16, (HCp∗) were examined in a quadrupole ion trap (QIT) mass spectrometer. Representative lanthanide ions, Ln+ and LnO+, and tantalum ions, Ta+ and TaO+, were studied for comparison. The product branching ratios for both primary and… (More)
