Abstract

Negative ion formation in collisions of potassium atoms with tetrahydrofuran (THF) and D-Ribose (DR) were performed in a crossed molecular beam setup equipped with a time-of-flight (TOF) mass spectrometer. Owing to the role of these molecules as possible representations of the sugar unit in the DNA/RNA, the fragmentation patterns obtained for different collision energies were compared and the role of K+ post-collision interaction with the molecular is evaluated.
