Abstract

In electron capture collisions, the product ion may be formed with sufficient internal energy to decompose. This was studied by the recently developed electron capture-induced decomposition (ECID) method in the case of the pyridine doubly charged molecular ion. The results indicate a close similarity between the ECID of benzene and pyridine doubly charged molecular ions. It was shown by translational energy spectroscopy and energetic measurements that ground-state processes occur at threshold. Internal energy distributions of the product C5H5N+ ion were determined by a deconvolution method. Cross-sections of electron capture were also determined.
