charge-transfer reaction

in mass spectrometry
An ion/neutral species reaction wherein the total charge on the reactant ion is transferred initially to the reactant neutral species so that the reactant ion becomes a neutral entity. Considering some of the possible reactions of ions M2+, M+ and M with a neutral species X, these would be further categorized as follows:
All are ion/neutral species reactions and also charge permutation reactions.
