      Abstract:

        Soft and reactive landing of mass-selected ions onto surfaces has   become a topic of substantial interest due to its promising   potential for the highly controlled preparation of materials. For   example, there are possible applications in the production of   peptide and protein microarrays for use in high-throughput   screening, protein separation and conformational enrichment of   peptides, redox protein characterization, thin-film production,   and the preparation of catalysts through deposition of clusters   and organometallic complexes. Soft landing overcomes many of the   limitations associated with conventional thin-film production   techniques and offers unprecedented selectivity and specificity   of preparation of deposited species. This review discusses the   fundamental aspects of soft and reactive landing of mass-selected   ions on surfaces that pertain to applications of these techniques   in biomaterials, molecular electronics, catalysis, and   interfacial chemistry.
