Topics in Ion Photodissociation

  • Robert C. Dunbar
Part of the Lecture Notes in Chemistry book series (LNC, volume 31)


The ICR spectrometer has come to be recognized as one of the best ways of looking at the photochemistry of gas-phase ions, and by the same token, ion photochemistry is an important, lively and (to take a biased view) exceptionally interesting area of ICR research. There are at least five ICR laboratories following such studies, all of them represented at the 1981 ICR Conference at Mainz, and pursuing a variety of aspects of ICR photochemistry. Here, the aim will not be to survey this field, but rather to note some of the different ideas and perspectives that have been current in our laboratory recently. (Recent reviews [1–41 are more comprehensive).
