Knudsen cell mass spectrometry was used to study ion-molecular electron exchange reactions between some trifluoromethyl derivatives of C60 fullerene. Electron affinity values were experimentally determined for C60(CF3)10 and the S 6 isomer of C60(CF3)12 and compared with the results of calculations and the data in the literature.
