The Effect of Temperature on Ion Cluster Formation of 2-propanol
Ion-mobility spectrometry offers a robust and effective technique to detect ion clusters. Here, influence of temperature on the ion cluster formation has been measured. Especially temperatures below 0°C favor formation of dimers and trimers for the 2-propanol used as a trace compound.
