A Varian Atlas SMIB double focusing mass spectrometer has been modified for field ionization kinetics measurements. Computer programs have been written for the calculation and display of potential maps, ion trajectories, and the transformation to ion lifetimes and phenomenological rate constants. The previously studied cyclohexene system has been used to check the accuracy of our method. The fragment ions generated by phenylhexanone after field ionization have also been examined by field ionization kinetics, including cleavage and rearrangement reactions, H/D randomization and temperature effects.
