From seed to cocrystal: Structural assignment of larger benzene–acetylene clusters is achieved by comparison of isomer- and mass-selective UV and IR–UV double resonance spectra with quantum chemical calculations. Structures and relative energies obtained with SCS-MP2 agree well with DFT-SAPT-based model potential results. A stepwise aggregation of the clusters is predicted and a possible cluster formation pathway (see picture) is discussed.
