Study of Atomic Metal Ions Generated by Laser Ionization
The development of a combined pulsed laser source-ion cyclotron resonance spectrometer in our laboratory has proven to be a convenient and powerful method of generating metal ions and for studying their subsequent chemistry in the gas phase. Based on this technique we have embarked on a wide range of studies on metal ions [1–7]. In particular our main emphasis this past year has been on the applications of metal ions as selective chemical ionization reagents and our progress in this area will dominate this discussion. In addition we report the first results combining laser ionization with a Nicolet FTMS prototype spectrometer recently put into operation and discuss some of the advantages of this approach.
