|ORANGE BOOK DEFINITION
IUPAC. Analytical Division. Compendium of Analytical Nomenclature (the Orange Book). Definitive Rules, 1979.
This is a process whereby an electron is removed from a molecule in its ground or an excited state so rapidly that a positive ion is produced without change in the positions or momenta of the atoms. The resultant ion is often in an excited state.
