Using a high resolution electron energy monochromator low energy electron attachment to formic acid is studied for the first time by means of mass spectrometric detection of the product anions. The largest dissociative electron attachment (DA) cross-section produces HCOO-+H with weaker channels for OH- and O- becoming apparent at higher incident energies.
