Molecular Ion Produced by EI

Molecular Ion Produced by EI

In electron ionization, electrons from a filament sometimes knock out an electron of molecules and ionize the same compounds without break-up. The produced ion has the same mass as the original compound except for a negligibly small mass of an electron. We call such an ion a "molecular ion". This ion is very important for determining the molecular weight.
