|Abstract:||Recent mass spectrometric studies of continuous cluster beams resulting from supersonic expansions of alkali metal vapor have led to the postulation of islands of enhanced thermodynamic stability among the clusters produced. We discuss the various assumptions being made in converting ion abundances measured in these mass spectra into information about neutral stabilities. In this connection a number of experiments are described which allow insight into unimolecular dissociation of alkali cluster ions and into neutral cluster growth.|
