Theoretical modeling of sustained off-resonance irradiation collision-induced dissociation (SORI-CID) experiments in Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FT-ICR) mass spectrometry is described in the present paper. Manipulation of various analytical expressions yield the result that the average laboratory frame collision energy is equal to 2/3 of the maximum kinetic energy in SORI. Survival yields (the fraction of nondecomposed molecular ions) as a function of excitation time, collision energy, and source temperature have been considered: results of MassKinetics-type reaction kinetics modeling were compared with experimental results obtained by Guo et al. (Int. J. Mass Spectrom. 2003, 225, 71-82). The results show that radiative cooling has a major influence in SORI-CID. They also suggest that collisional cooling is significant only at very low (less than 0.02 eV) center of mass collision energy; therefore it has a very small influence on the SORI process. Survival yield curves showed excellent agreement between experiments and calculations optimizing two parameters only (collisional energy-transfer efficiency and radiative cooling rate). Using leucine enkephalin as a model compound, the results indicate 0.128 ± 0.021 energy deposition in a single collision and 7.5 ± 0.5 s-1 infrared cooling rate. We also present that these two physical parameters cannot be properly deconvoluted. This effect shows the importance of the parallel consideration of different physical processes.
