gas phase studies of cucurbit[n]urils and their complexes range from simple mass spectrometric determinations of complex stoichiometry to sophisticated multi-stage experiments that probe structure, reaction kinetics, or spectroscopy in the absence of solvent while using microgram or smaller amounts of material. This chapter describes the electrospray and matrix-assisted laser desorption methods used to introduce cucurbit[n]uril complexes into the gas phase, and briefly introduces the computational, collision-induced dissociation, ion mobility, kinetic, and spectroscopic techniques used to study them, along with examples of each from recent literature.
