Ionisation and fragmentation of tetraphenyl iron (III) porphyrin chloride induced by slow multiply charged ion impact

Abstract : Ionisation and ion-induced fragmentation of tetraphenyl iron (III) porphyrin chloride (FeTPPCl) molecules have been studied after slow collisions (v ∼ 0.2 a.u.) with multiply charged ions (O3+, Ar8+). Intact molecules and large fragments are observed in charge states up to q = 4. For q = 1, the intact molecule is the most abundant species, in particular, when projectiles in higher charge states are used. When the internal energy of the singly charged ion is increased by the energy transfer during the collision, the singly charged system de-excites by the emission of a neutral Cl-atom, a free electron or possibly a negative Cl anion. The processes are observed as direct as well as delayed processes on a μs-time scale. For q = 2 to 4 the loss of the Cl-atom and some phenyl groups becomes more likely due to the lower stability and the larger energy transfer. The charge state distribution of atomic fragments is found to be very different, in particular, when Cq+ and Clq+ ions are compared. In the first case mainly singly charged ions are detected, whereas in the second case ions in charge states up to q = 6 are observed with high intensities. These phenomena are discussed in terms of the intramolecular charge mobility.
