Ag(+)(benzene) complexes are generated in the gas phase by laser vaporization and mass selected in a time-of-flight spectrometer. UV laser excitation at either 355 or 266 nm results in dissociative charge transfer (DCT), leading to neutral silver atom and benzene cation products. Kinetic energy release in translationally hot benzene cations is detected… CONTINUE READING
