Mass Spectrometry of Chalcogenide Glass and Carbon Nitrides


Based on the mass spectrometric study of chalcogenide and fullerene-chalcogenide glass (CG), as well as amorphous and crystalline carbon nitrides with general formula CnNm, which are similar to CG, are considered according to the type of chemical bond, their vapor composition, and the effect of the initial specimens of the synthesized materials, including those containing metal components, fullerenes, and binary and ternary chemical compounds, as well as other structural units (SUs) and structural motifs.
