We demonstrate that low-energy electron (< 3 eV) interaction with 2,3-dimethoxy-5-methyl-1,4- benzoquinone (DMB) in the gas phase leads to a wide assortment of anionic fragments. DMB is the functional head-group of ubiquinone electron carrier involved in the electron transport chain in mithochondrial membrane. This study is a key contribution to a more comprehensive understanding of the electron transport in the mithochondrial membrane by ubiquinone.
