|Abstract:||Isomeric C2S4 ·+ radical cations, a dimer (CS2)CS2 ·+ and a covalently bounded C2S4 ·+ species, are generated by chemical ionization (self-chemical ionization conditions) of carbon disulfide or by dissociative electron ionization of 1,3,4,6-tetrathiapentalene-2,5-dione and 1,2-dithiolo[4,3-c][1,2]dithiole-3,6-dione, respectively. These ions are structurally characterized making use of mass spectrometric methodologies such as collisional activation, neutralization-reionization and ion-molecule reactions performed in a hybrid tandem mass spectrometer of sector-quadrupole-sector configuration. These experimental results are supported by ab initio calculations of the relative energies of 19 possible isomers indicating that the most stable C2S4 ·+ structure corresponds to a CS2 dimer with a C2 symmetry, 52 kJ mol-1 more stable than the lowest-energy covalently bound structure consisting of a four-membered ring thioketene species. © 2001 Elsevier Science B.V.|
