Upon investigation of the clustering behavior of a series of alkyl quaternary ammonium bromides (MBr) in liquid secondary ion mass spectrometry (LSIMS), only the dimer ion, M(2)Br(+), was of significant abundance in the resultant mass spectra. The ion abundance of the dimer grows relative to that of the molecular ion, M(+), with increasing analyte concentration in LSIMS until a concentration is reached where the ion abundance ratio M(2)Br(+)/M(+) remains constant upon subsequent analyte addition, The relationship between the M(2)Br(+)/M(+) ion abundance ratio and analyte concentration can be explained in terms of the solution equilibrium between these species, where the plateau region of the plot corresponds to the presence of an analyte monolayer at the liquid surface. The M(2)Br(+)/M(+) values obtained in this region provide relative dimer bond strengths for the alkyl quaternary ammonium salts, so the effect of different substituents on dimer stability can be assessed. Using this method, the importance of the electrostatic interaction on the dimer strength and the destabilizing effect of the hydrophobic interaction between long alkyl chains is revealed. (EN)
