The current chapter summarizes 276 references to offer an up-to-date survey of literature on the mass spectrometry and gas-phase ion chemistry of phenolate- or phenol-containing metal complexes and their chalcogenide thio- and seleno-analogs. Analytical applications of MS techniques to the characterization of these metal–ligand systems are discussed. The latter include more than 400 species such as mixed-ligand metal complexes, bifunctional compounds containing organometallic and classical Werner-type coordination sites, nanoclusters, species with metal–metal bonds, mixed-metal complexes, etc. Some of them are isomers. The reviewed data provides the reader with a solid foundation for selecting the adequate MS instrumentation in related future studies. Data on gas-phase ion structure, energetics and reactivity are summarized as well. Circa 150 examples of ion/molecule reactions with the participation of metal-containing ions and phenol or thiophenol derivatives are examined. Additionally, the review addresses the 3D structural features of several model complexes between metal ions and phenol- or thiophenol-related species as determined from theoretical calculations and IRMPD spectroscopic measurements, as well as their use for elucidation of the nature of metal cation–π interaction or σ-binding, which mimic the active centers of biomolecular systems.
