Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 269)


Electronic sputtering of volatile organic substances like decane and phenol have been investigated in experiments recently. Some results indicate different formation conditions for positive and negative molecular and cluster ions. The observations are explained by applying electronic transport theory and elementary scattering theory.
