Abstract

Benzene cluster ions are particularly stable with respect to evaporative decay when they contain 14, 20, 24, or 27 molecules. These numbers are each one greater than the corresponding rare-gas cluster magic numbers and are therefore associated with icosahedral packing about a central dimer ion.
