Abstract

By applying different electric field strengths to the orifice-skimmer region of an electrospray ionization mass spectrometer, the rate of dissociation can be varied based on the amount of infernal energy acquired by an ion through collisions: with the curtain gas molecules. Both the Arrhenius equation and Rice-Ramsperger-Kassel (RRK) theory can be used to predict the rate of dissociation of internally excited molecules. A previously determined model for collision-induced dissociation is tested by comparison of predicted and experimentally observed orifice-skimmer potential differences for dissociation of ions. The rate of collision-induced dissociation of bradykinin ions is determined by monitoring the fragments produced in a mass spectrometer. The semi-quantitative model is found to yield effective predictions when accurate Arrhenius and RRK parameters are utilized. (C) 2001 American Society for Mass Spectrometry.
