Ligand-ligand interactions in the outer coordination sphere make an important contribution to the effects of 3-substituents on the stabilities of anionic Cu(II) salicylaldoximato complexes [CuL(L-H)](-). When substituents contain a different number of bonds the interpretation of CID tandem mass spectrometry must take into account the ability of ions to redistribute energy acquired in collisions within different numbers of vibrational modes.
