charge-mediated fragmentation

heterolytic fragmentation

inductive cleavage

Fragmentation of an ion in which the cleavage of one of its bonds is induced by the charge site. The cleaved bond is adjacent to the apparent charge site, and its cleavage involves movement of the electron pair forming that bond to the original charge site and thus migration of the charge to the released fragment.
