We demonstrate that desorption electrospray ionization (DESI) can intercept reaction intermediates in solution on the millisecond timescale. Here we employ this method to study the reaction mechanisms of various organometallic complexes relevant to transfer hydrogenation and H2O oxidation catalysis. Support from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research is gratefully acknowledged.
