Classical molecular dynamics simulations were used to examine the influence of incident angle on the interaction of polyatomic hydrocarbon ion (C3H5+) with the polystyrene surfaces. The reactive empirical bond order method developed by Tersoff and parametrized by Brenner was used to determine the forces. The results showed that in only 2% of the trajectories intact ions scatter from the surface and the ions dissociate in 61% of the trajectories at normal incidence.
