    A large number of carbon cluster monoanions, C-n, have now been detected by negative ion photoelectron spectroscopy. In addition, evidence for carbon cluster dianions, C2-n, as small as C2-7 has been obtained mass spectrometrically. In this research we report results of theoretical calculations...

    A balanced theoretical treatment of the &Xtilde;²A' state of the vinyl radical is performed via application of equation-of-motion coupled cluster theory for ionized states from the anion. Good agreement with experiment is generally found. The only exception is the vs vibrational mode, which...

    Anion formation following electron impact to CF3I is studied in the energy range 0–15 eV. The experiments include gas phase CF3I in the effusive molecular beam under single collision conditions, clusters in a supersonic molecular jet and CF3I condensed in the UHV in multilayer amounts...

    In a recently published report on the time-of-flight mass spectrometry studies and ab initio RHF/3-21G calculations of the CnN- clusters (n=1 to 13), Wang, Huang, Liu, and Zhang claimed that all the CnN- clusters (n=1 to 13) should be linear chains. In the present work, we report the new results...
