An attempt was made to decipher the structure of (OCS)n- cluster anions using photoelectron spectroscopy. The employed imaging approach allowed the simultaneous examination of energy spectra and angular distributions of both fast and slow photoelectrons. The results provide evidence of the coexistence of electronic and structural isomers of (OCS)n- with the OCS- and covalently bound (OCS)2- cluster cores.
