Abstract

Photoelectron spectroscopy of size-selected ConOm- clusters (n = 4-20; m = 0-2) is performed in a pulsed molecular beam experimental at photon energies of 3.49 and 4.66 eV. Cobalt oxide cluster anions are generated in a laser vaporization source and the photoelectron spectra are measured with a magnetic bottle photoelectron spectrometer. The size-dependent evolution of the electronic structure of the oxide clusters is discussed in terms of cluster composition. Threshold binding energy features are mainly contributed from Co d-derived orbitals throughout the complete series, indicating that the incoming oxygen atoms cause a minor influence on the electronic structures. Although for n > 13 EAs and VDEs of Con and ConOm clusters overlap within the experimental resolution, at smaller cluster sizes, the values increase in the order of Con < ConO < ConO2. For Co4O3- and Co5O3-, the spectra indicate the presence of isomers with low EAs peroxo and ozonide isomers. To compare the different channels of oxygen chemisorption, relative dissociation energies are determined via thermochemical cycles.
