Multiphoton dissociation/ionization has been studied for CH3SCH3 at 355 and 532 nm using a time-of-flight mass spectrometer. The major ion signals observed at 355 nm are C+, CH3+, HCS+, CH2S+, CH3S+ and CH3SCH3+. Power dependence studies at 355 nm show a (2+1) REMPI process for the formation of parent ion. Peaks at

Ground state geometry and electronic structure of M42- cluster (M = B, Al, Ga) have been investigated to evaluate their aromatic properties. The calculations are performed by employing the Density Functional Theory (DFT) method. It is found that all these three clusters adopt square planar configuration. Results reveal that square planar M42- dianion exhibits characteristics of multifold aromaticity with two delocalised π-electrons. In spite of the unstable nature of these dianionic clusters in the gas phase, their interaction with the sodium atoms forms very stable dipyramidal M4Na2 complexes while maintaining their square planar structure and aromaticity.
