Title: Magic numbers in kinetic energy releases for unimolecular decompositions of (NH sub 3 ) sub n H sup + ion clusters

Abstract

The average kinetic energy (T) released during unimolecular decomposition of protonated ammonia ion clusters, (NH{sub 3}){sub n}H{sup +}, has been measured as a function of cluster size for n = 2-8. There is a pronounced discontinuity in the generally rising function of (T) with n, reflecting the filling of the first solvation shell at n = 5.
