Protonated molecule

An ion formed by interaction of a molecule with a proton abstracted from an ion, as often happens in chemical ionization according to the reaction M + XH+ ? MH+ + X. The symbolism (M+H)+ may also be used. The widely used term 'protonated molecular ion' is not recommended as it suggests an association product of a proton with a molecular ion.

Protonated molecule

http://goldbook.iupac.org/P04908.html

An ion formed by interaction of a molecule with a proton abstracted from an ion, as often occurs in chemical ionization according to the reaction:

M + XH+ ? MH+ + X

. The symbolism [M + H]+ may also be used to represent the protonated molecule. The widely used term 'protonated molecular ion' to describe the MH+ ion is not recommended, since it suggests an associated product of a proton with a molecular ion.
