J Am Soc Mass Spectrom. 2007 Apr;18(4):769-77. Epub 2007 Feb 20.Aqueous solutions of dichloro(ethylenediamine)palladium(II) were investigated using electrospray mass spectrometry (ESMS). The most abundant peak (m/z 436.8) was attributed to the dimeric Pd(en)Cl2.Pd(en)Cl+ ion. We conjecture that the structures of the observed ions arise from the clustering of the hydrolysis products of the parent compound. This hypothesis was tested experimentally by carrying out a series of collision-induced dissociation (CID) experiments and deuterium exchange reactions. Read More
