Ion Cyclotron Resonance Spectrometry

  • Jay M. S. Henis


It is the purpose of this chapter to explain and to illustrate ion cyclotron resonance (ICR) mass spectrometry, especially as it is currently used to study ion-molecule reactions. Although ICR spectrometry is not particularly new, a great deal of effort has gone into its development as a tool for the study of such reactions in the past several years. Hence, in this review, emphasis has been placed on those aspects of the theory and technique that bear on this subject. While no effort is made here to review all of the chemical systems which have been studied by the ICR technique, previously reported results are used where possible to illustrate specific techniques and the interpretation of ICR spectra.
