    The threshold collision-induced dissociation method is applied to study the fragmentation patterns and to measure the dissociation energies of small anionic copper clusters (Cu[sub n][sup -], n=2-8) and their monocarbonyls (Cu[sub n]CO[sup -], n=3-7). For the bare clusters, the main reaction...

    The ionic dissociation of H-X acids (X = F, Cl, Br, I) in water was examined by conducting a theoretical study on the properties of the clusters formed by the acids with up to five water molecules: X-H(H[sub 2]O)[sub n] (n = 1-5). Calculations were done using the DFT/B3LYP and MP2 methods in...
