Abstract

Electrospray ionization provides a "treasure trove" of metal containing ions whose fundamental reactivity can be studied via collision induced dissociation and ion-molecule reactions using the multistage mass spectrometry capabilities of the quadrupole ion trap mass spectrometer. Examples of metal mediated chemistry relevant to catalysis, C-C bond coupling, bioinorganic and supramolecular chemistry are highlighted.
