Investigates the photodissociation of the three singly substituted, binary metal containing metallocarbohedrenes. Identification of the photofragments through energy analysis of the fragment ions in a reflectron time-of-flight mass spectrometer; Finding that the dominant mechanism proceeds through the loss of neutral titanium atoms for all clusters.
