Across the globe the search for ways of a more resourceful convention of the abundant, untapped reserves of over 1850.5 ppb of methane gas. The UV photofragment spectrum of the dication complex ion [Mn(4-Picoline)3]2+ had been recorded in the gas phase for theoretical and experimental analysis using a quadrupole ion trap mass spectrometer. Using a combination of the pick-up technique and high energy electron impact the [Mn(4-Picoline)3]2+ ions were prepared and then held in a cold ion trap where they were excited with tuneable UV radiation and effectively activated further with methane. From the DFT calculations, the optimised C1 conformer of [Mn(4-Picoline)3]2+ was confirmed.
