Title: Novel size-dependent chemistry within ionized van der Waals clusters of 1,1-difluoroethane

Abstract

The authors present in this paper evidence for size-dependent cluster chemistry occurring in van der Waals clusters of 1,1-difluoroethane. Clusters of C{sub 2}H{sub 4}F{sub 2} are produced from a neat adiabatic expansion and are ionized via electron impact. In addition to the anticipated fragment ions, we observe ions with the general empirical formula of M{sub n}H{sup +} (where n {ge} 4). The reactive process that generates this species cannot be rationalized in terms of intramolecular analogues of known gas-phase bimolecular ion-molecular reactions. Hence, we fell the production of this product cluster ion represents an additional example of a brand new class of ion-molecule reactions that can only occur within the unique solvated environment of the cluster.
