Abstract:

The drift tube of a time-of-flight mass spectrometer has been adapted to serve as a reactioncollision chamber for studying ion dissociation reactions and charge-changing collisions. The methods for identifying the products of such processes depend on shifts in flight times produced by symmetric potential barriers, and are normally used in studying processes in which the mass-to-charge ratio mq of the charged product particle is less than that of its parent. Processes in which the mq of a charged product is greater than that of its parent represent an interesting special case, since the behavior of the product particle is quite different from that normally encountered. To illustrate this behavior, experimental observations of the 2, 1 charge transfer process N2 N2O N2 N2O at 6000 ev are presented. Author
