Reactivity of C2H5+ with benzene: formation of ethylbenzenium ions and implications for Titan's ionospheric chemistry.


The reaction of ethyl cation with benzene has been investigated in a combined experimental and theoretical approach. Under single collision conditions, proton transfer affording protonated benzene concomitant with neutral ethene represents the major reaction channel. From pressure-dependent measurements, an absolute cross section of 7 +/- 2 A(2) at… (More)
