Size-dependent gas phase reactivity of tantalum cluster cations with small alcohols
Abstract Small tantalum cluster cations (Ta4–9+) were produced in the gas phase by laser vaporization. Various alcohols (methanol, ethanol, n-propanol and 2-propanol) were consecutively added to the cluster beam in a pulsed jet and allowed to react to an extent of conversion of approximately 50
