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.

Keywords Ion clusters, ion-mobility spectrometry, time-of-flight
