Focusing on the behavior of small organic ions and gas-phase ion chemistry for making new ion structure assignments, this reviews the methods necessary for determining gas-phase ion structures. Designed for use as background material by practitioners, this covers a range of topics from over 40 years of research, including current experimental methods for ion production and separation as well as those designed to reveal qualitative and quantitative aspect of gas-phased ions, theory and methods, tools for identifying the structure of gas-phase ions, what and what not to expect from gas-phase ions, ions containing C and polyatomic ions A polyatomic ion is a molecule that bears ionic groups, that is, a molecule with a charge. The majority of biological compounds and inorganic species conform to this strict definition. containing one to three C atoms, ion structures, ions containing only carbon atoms Noun 1. carbon atom - an atom of carbon
atom - (physics and chemistry) the smallest component of an element having the chemical properties of the element , and those containing one, two or three carbon atoms. The authors provide a cross-referenced index to the introduction and chapter on tools and an index of empirical formulae.
