Abstract
This review will be concerned primarily with thermal alkali-metal ion assoc iation reactions of the general type: A(+) + M + N reversible arrow (A + M) (+) + N. Where A denotes a positively charged alkali metal ion, M is neutra l species and N works as a third body. As indicated, most association react ions ave reversible, and the A-M bond derives primarily front electrostatic forces whose energy (affinity) is typically 50 kcal/mol or less, often muc h less. The review includes reaction mechanism, instrumentation, and applic ation to mass spectrometry, together with reaction rates and alkali ion aff inities of the classified compounds.
