The formation of ions from the charged droplets produced in the several spray ionization techniques is viewed as an activated rate process involving field-assisted desorption, in accord with the ideas first set forth by Iribame and Thomson. The novel features of the present treatment are particularly relevant to the unique ability of electrospray ionization to transform large molecules in solution to free ions in the gas phase, with extensive multiple charging. These new features stem mainly… CONTINUE READING
