Abstract : This report presents a collision induced dissociation (CID) study of small boron oxide cations, (BnOm)(+), motivated by a need for more accurate and reliable structural and thermodynamic information on both neutral and ionic boron oxides. This work compliments ongoing ab initio calculations by Page and co-workers, and provides many points of comparison between experiment and theory. In addition, the results of our CID study are important in interpretation of boron oxide cluster chemistry work in our lab.
