Low energy electron attachment cross sections for acetonitrile (CH3CN) are reported in the energy range from about 0 up to 10 eV determined with an energy resolution of 140 meV. Electron attachment is shown to be a purely dissociative process with the production of the five anionic fragments: CH2CN−, CHCN−, CCN−, CN− and CH3− observed in two energy regions, the first between 1 and 4 eV, the second in excess of 6 eV. Quantum chemical and trajectory calculations have been carried out to complement the experimental results.
