The mass spectrum obtained at 60 eV and 70 FA showed
in addition to Cs + ,Cs", and A u' a distinct signal for
CsAu+. In the temperature range 1200-1500 K the intensity of the signal at m/e=330 is weaker by a factor of about
lo3 than that of the Cs+ signal. Figure 1 shows plots of the
ionization curves of CsAu + and Au + obtained at a Knudsen

Existence and Bond Energy of the Cesium Auride
By Bernd Busse and Konrad G. WeZl[']
As prototypes of the metal-metal bond, isolated dimeric
and oligomeric metallic species are investigated primarily by
matrix isolation techniques[''. This method, however, has the
disadvantage that the properties of the species investigated
can be strongly influenced in an, as yet, unclear manner by
interaction with the matrix material. Mass spectrometry of
metal vapors permits observation of not only the metal atoms
but also dimers and oligorners. Investigations on binary systems can thus afford valuable information on the existence
and properties of heterometallic molecules. We have therefore started a series of studies on systems in which there is a
large difference in electronegativity of the metal partners-in
anticipation of finding molecules having predictable bonding character in such systems.
As the phase diagram of cesium-gold121shows, this system
forms a n intermetallic compound with a 1 : l composition
which crystallizes with a CsC1-type structure and has a melting point of 590°C. In the liquid state it exists as a purely
ionicmeltr3'.A stable molecule CsAu can be expected to exist
in the vapor phase. In our experiments we used a MM 30 K
mass spectrometer (VG-Micromass) especially developed for
investigations by the Knudsen method (collector system with
conversion dynodes, no mass discrimination). The ionization
was achieved by electron impact. For preparation of the intermetallic compound stoichiometric amounts of the components --pure cesium, packed and stored under high vacuum
(Merck), and pure gold (Degussa), cut into small pieceswere weighed under pure argon into a molybdenum Knudsen cell. The cell, sealed by a screw-top lid, was heated briefly
in an evacuated oven at the melting temperature of gold and
then annealed for 5-6 h at 700°C. After cooling, an effusion orifice in the cell was rapidly opened in a stream of ar['I

Extrapolation of the curves gave appearance potentials of
6.6 k 0.3 eV for CsAu and 9.0 0.3 eV for Au . As a rule of
thumb, an appearance potential near to the mean value of the
ionization potentials of its atoms can be expected for molecules without free valence electrons. For Cs and Au this
leads to 6.55 eV. The experimental value for A u + agrees
within the limits of error with the ionization potential of Au
(9.22 eV).
A decrease in the slope of the ionization curve of CsAu+
at 8.7 eV can be interpreted in terms of the fragmentation
A corresponding increase in the slope of the ionization curve
of Cs' is not observable since the differences in intensity of
the two reaction channels for formation of Cs' are too
Conclusions on the bond energy of the molecule can be
drawn from the fragmentation energy if the ionization potentials of the fragment ions are known and if it can be assumed
that the fragmentation products are formed without additional kinetic energy.

Thus, from a thermodynamic cycle we obtain for the bond
ported"] to be z7 x lo'. Since alkyl substitution is not expected to change this value significantly, it may safely be assumed that practically all the Ag ions are in the complexed
state. All the experiments were carried out at concentrations
above the CMC of (1)' Ag'. i. e. 3.3 x 10 mol/l. The molecular weight of the relatively large micellar aggregates
(6.3 x 10') was determined by quasielastic light scattering.
In the photochemical reduction of Ag' in ( I ) .Ag ' , the
cyanine dye (2) was used as a sensitizer. This dye absorbs in
D(CsAu) = A E * - I ( C s ) = 8.7 e V -4.0 e V =4.7 e V
%460+30 kJ/mol
At first sight this value appears astonishingly high; however,
it is consistent with the expected formation of an ionic bond
due to the difference in electronegativities of gold and cesium. Calculation of the bond energy from the electronegativities and known dissociation energies of the dimers Cs2
and Au2 according to PuulingI4' gives a value of 430 kJ/mol.
Also interesting is a comparison with the isostructural CsC1,
for which the value D(CsC1) =444 kJ/mol was found"].
Our findings clearly indicate that the stability of the cesium auride molecule is essentially determined by ionic
bonding, with cesium acting as the donor and gold as the acceptor.

the visible region[41(A,,, = 500 nm) and due to Its hydrophobic nature is expected to associate quantitatively with
(I).Ag. In solutions of simple micelles such as sodium laurylsulfate (2) displays a strong fluorescence (c#+= 0.45). This
emission is totally quenched (& < lo-') in micellar solutions
of ( I ) . Ag +. On illumination with visible light, rapid bleaching of the cyanine and formation of a new stable absorption
band with a maximum at A=415 nm is observed (Fig. 1).
The hydrophobic species produced is hence readily extracted
into a chloroform solution (An,.sx = 410 nm; Fig. 1).
