Abstract

The formation of the [(OCS)n(H2O)k]-- (n≥1,n+k≥2) cluster ions was followed. OCS-·H2O was found to be the most interesting species in view of the near absence of the seemingly simpler OCS- in the same ion source. The presence of the monohydrated anions was attribued to the stabilization of OCS- by hydration and served as unambiguous proof that the intra-cluster formation of OCS- monomers is part of the [(OCS)n(H2O)k]- dynamics.
