Reactions of Negative Ions

  • A. A. Viggiano

Traditionally, negative ion-molecule reactions have been much less studied than those of positive ions. This is due to the fact that the most popular type of ion source, electron impact, produces a much greater variety of positive ions than negative ions and usually in greater abundances. Thus, in order to make workable signals of many types of negative ions, ion sources in which ion-molecule reactions take place have to be used.
