Cryo Tagging Infrared Spectroscopy and Temperature Controlled Kinetic Studies in a Tandem Trap Mass Spectrometer

  • In the present work, the interaction of diatomic molecules with charged transition metal clusters and complexes was investigated. Temperature controlled isothermal kinetic studies served to elucidate the adsorption behavior of transition metal clusters. Infrared multiple photon dissociation (IR-MPD) experiments in conjunction with density functional theory (DFT) computations enabled the analysis of adsorbate induced changes on the structure and spin multiplicity of transition metal cores. A tandem cryo trap setup was used for the kinetic and spectroscopic investigations of the given compounds as isolated species in the gas phase. The presented investigations enabled insight into the metal-adsorbate bonding and provided cluster size and adsorbate coverage dependent information on cluster surface morphologies.
