  author={Edward M. Chait and William B. Askew},
Preliminary results indicate the value of ion kinetic energy (1KE) spectra in adding a new dimension to structural information obtained by mass spectrometry. These spectra are especially useful in the distinction of some isomer pairs. Energy spectra provide a summary of gaseous ion chemistry occurring as metastable transitions in the first-field free-drift region of the double-focusing (Mattauch-Herzog geometry) mass spectrometer and are produced by scanning the electrostatic sector voltage… CONTINUE READING
