Abstract : One of the truly difficult tasks in molecular science is determining experimental conformations of either highly reactive species or specie that have essentially no vapor pressure at any accessible temperature. In the past three years significant progress has been made in developing methods to attack this problem using ion mobility techniques developed with support from this grant. Initial applications have been to carbon clusters, carbon metal composites, gas phase polymers, and host/guest systems. A total of 19 papers were published in peer reviewed journals, and numerous invited and contributed papers were given at conferences describing this work.
