Ionizing collision
ionizing collision (in mass spectrometry)

Reaction of an ion with a neutral in which one or more electrons are removed from either the ion or neutral to form free electrons.

Note 1: This term has come to be used to describe collisions of fast-moving ions with a neutral in which the neutral is ionized with no change in the number of charges carried by the ion.
Note 2: Care should be taken when this term is used to emphasize whether or not charge stripping of the ion has taken place.

Ionizing collision

An ion/neutral species interaction in which an electron or electrons are stripped from the ion and/or neutral species in the collision. Generally this is used to describe collisions of fast-moving ions with a neutral species in which the latter is ionised with no change in the number of charges carried by the ion.
