A single ion is enough: Ion reaction rates and reaction product branching ratios could be determined through repeated regeneration of the original target ion by photodissociation after each reaction. The product molecule was identified through nondestructive mass spectrometry. Finally, the target ion was regenerated through photodissociation of the molecular ion (see picture).
