Abstract

Terbium (Tb)-phthalocyanine (pc) sandwich clusters, Tbn(pc)n+1 (n = 1-4), and their Na adducts, TbNak(pc)2 (k = 1-4) were produced by dual laser vaporization of a Tb rod and the molded rod of metal-free or disodium phthalocyanine (H2pc/Na2pc) in gas phase. The minimum number of Na atoms attached to the cationic/neutral/anionic Tb1(pc)2 clusters is 2, 1, and 0, respectively. Together with the ionization energies of the Na adducts of Tb(Na)k(pc)2 (k = 1 and 2), it is revealed that the Tb-pc clusters are formed through fairly ionic bondings, where each component exists as Tb3+, Na+, and pc2-, respectively.
