Ion cyclotron double-resonance (ICDR) techniques have been widely used to determine the pathways of ion-molecule reactions [1]. Methods using isotopi-cally labelled reactants, mainly hydrogen isotopes, have also been previously applied to studies of reaction mechanisms [2]. These methods are not always straight-forward. In this work the mechanisms of some positive and negative ion-molecule reactions were studied employing ICDR techniques in combination with isotope labelling.

    For increased sensitivity care should be taken to avoid overlap of mass/ charge between the chosen product ion and various reactant ions and other fragment ions present.Google Scholar
