Abstract

We examined the fragmentation and ionization of molecules by low-temperature electrons generated by electron cyclotron resonance (ECR) plasma. We examined several types of metallocene compounds comprising a metal and 1,3-cyclopentadienes as ligands. We performed analyses using an ECR ion source (ECRIS) mass spectrometer. Consequently, we succeeded in ionizing fragments of an organometallic compound by adjusting the input power of the microwave introducing a super high-frequency plasma. Moreover, we succeeded in dynamically generating a significant quantity of fragment ions by continuously varying the input power. Information on the structure of a molecule may be acquired from this operation. Moreover, a molecule that could not be easily ionized thus far may now be ionizable when soft ionization is performed with this technique.
