Infrared predissociation spectroscopy is carried out for the structure investigation of unprotonated cluster cations of protic molecules such as ammonia and methanol, which are generated through vacuum-ultraviolet one-photon ionization of their jet-cooled neutral clusters. The observed spectral features show that the cluster cations have the proton… CONTINUE READING
