Abstract

Unique features of doubly-charged stable organic ions are examined and the results correlated with experimental observations. Self-consistent field molecular orbital methods are used to compute structures and stabilities of CnH 2 2+ (n=2–9) ions which are prominent in electron impact ionization of hydrocarbon molecules. A simple curve crossing model is employed to rationalize charge transfer reactions of these ions.
