Surface Organic Reactions Induced by Ion Bombardment
While chemical reactions, for example cationization, are common in desorption ionization methods,complex bonding processes are not [1–3]. Electron or ion transfer, clustering and fragmentation (often by simple gas phase dissociation) are often involved in ion formation when organic molecules are subjected to particle impact. Inorganic complexes and organometallic compounds often undergo more complex processes, including ligand exchange and other condensed phase behavior [4–5]. MICHL  has shown that simple nitrogen oxides in frozen matrices are very reactive upon argon ion bombardment, and several authors have demonstrated that chemical reduction can occur in glycerol under fast atom bombardment conditions [7–11].
