Abstract:

Spurious fragment peaks that simulate fragment-ion products of ion dissociation reactions occurring in the reaction region can arise from processes that occur after the reactant ion has passed through the reaction region and entered the potential barrier used to separate normal products and reactants. Analytic expressions for the flighttime shifts characteristics of peaks arising in this way are derived. These flight-time shifts depend on the distance from the ion source to the potential barrier, whereas flight-time shifts for true fragments formed in the reaction zone are independent of this distance.
