Abstract

Electron-capture induced dissociation of protoporphyrin cations and anions has been studied. The cations captured two electrons in two successive collisions and were converted to the corresponding even-electron anions. About one fifth of the ions lost a hydrogen atom to become radical anions but otherwise very little fragmentation was observed. The anions captured an electron to become dianions. No hydrogen loss occurred, and the only fragmentation channel observed was loss of CO2H, to give a doubly charged carbanion. Our results indicate that protoporphyrin ions are very efficient in accommodating one or even two electrons in the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital of the porphyrin macrocycle, and that electron capture induces only limited dissociation.
