Reactions of nitric oxide on Rh6+ clusters: abundant chemistry and evidence of structural isomers.
We report the first results of a new instrument for the study of the reactions of naked metal cluster ions using techniques developed by Professor Bondybey to whom this issue is dedicated. Rh6+ ions have been produced using a laser vaporization source and injected into a 3 T Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FT-ICR) mass spectrometer where they are exposed to a low pressure (< 10(-8) mbar) of nitric oxide, NO. This system exhibits abundant chemistry, the first stages of which we i...Expand abstract
