Ion cyclotron resonance (ICR) spectroscopy with a pulsed laser volatilization/ ionization source of atomic metal cations has recently been applied to studies of the reactions of gas-phase metal ions with neutral molecules 11,2]. Initial results from this laboratory have included a variety of mechanistic studies [1–4] as well as measurements of gas-phase ligand binding energies for a number of different metal cations [5–9]. These mechanistic and thermodynamic studies yield data which is useful in developing models for understanding molecular interactions.
