Title: The first direct observation of the trifluoride anion (F{sub 3}{sup {minus}}) in the gas phase

Abstract

Numerous theoretical calculations predict that F{sub 3}{sup {minus}} is a stable anion; however, there has been no reported observation of this species in the gas phase. The authors now report the formation and detection of F{sub 3}{sup {minus}} by electron-capture mass spectrometry, suggest a mechanism for its formation, and present a preliminary investigation of its collision-induced dissociation (CID).
