The Search for Novel Small Molecules and Radicals

  • John L. Holmes

Abstract

Advances in the study of ion structures in the gas phase have shown that small organic cations of unusual structure can readily be prepared by simple mass spectrometric experiments. Such species are well exemplified by the wide range of ylid and distonic ions which have been fully characterized by both theory and experiment; e.g. the homologous ions CH2XH+., CH2CH2XH+. (X = OH, halogen etc.).
