Ionic Collisions as the Basis for New Types of Mass Spectra
Recently developed techniques for ion structure determination employ ion-molecule reactions in which the ion of interest undergoes a change in charge. These charge permutation reactions can be classified into two categories: (a) charge stripping, in which electrons are removed (stripped) from the high-energy ion, or (b) charge exchange, in which electrons are transferred between the ion and a neutral collision gas. In this chapter we will be concerned with the following four specific charge permutation reactions of polyatomic organic ions.
