Abstract: The unimolecular charge separation reactions of the doubly charged ions FeC_(10)H_(10)~(2+)、FeC_(10)H_9~(2+)、FeC_(10)H_8~(2+) produced in the ion source by electron impact from ferrocene have been studied using Mass analyzed Ion Kinetic Energy Spectrometry (MIKES) technique. From the values of the kinetic energy releases (T), the intercharge distances (R) of the exploding doubly charged ions in their transition structures have been estimated and some structural informations about the transition states can be obtained. The collision induced reactions of the FeC_(10)H_(10)~(2+) ion with Ar have been studied using MIKES, we postulate a new type of continuing reaction which may be "collisional charge separation induced dissociation".
