In this paper we report absolute cross sections for reactions of small aluminum cluster ions Al 1–5 + with several neutral reagents. Dependence of reactivity on cluster size and collision energy has been measured in a tandem mass spectrometer equipped with radio frequency (rf) ion guides and a unique source of thermalized metal cluster ions.
