    The species HNCS and NCS have been studied by photoionization mass spectroscopy. The adiabatic ionization potential (IP) of HNCS is ≤9.92 eV; the shape of the ion yield curve near threshold implies a large change in geometry, perhaps to linear HNCS+. Various appearance potentials (AP) from...

    The photoionization of neutral liquid helium droplets (mean particle number =102–107) was studied using synchrotron radiation at photon energies ranging from 15 to 30 eV. Mass spectra as well as total and mass selective ion yields were measured as a function of the photon energy for...

    B2H4 has been produced by the reaction of F atoms with B2H6, in successive abstraction reactions. The B2H4 species was detected and analyzed by photoionization mass spectrometry. The adiabatic ionization potential of this species (9.70±0.02 eV) and the vertical value (∼10.4 eV) are...

    The adiabatic ionization potential of GeH+4 (GeH4) is measured by photoionization mass spectrometry to be ≤10.53 eV and perhaps as low as 10.44 eV. This is about 0.8 eV (∼9 vibrational quanta) lower than the value reported by photoelectron spectroscopy. This result, analogous to that...
