Neutralization-reionization mass spectrometry (NRMS) has been used for the first time to generate and characterize in the gas phase neutral FeCHx (x = 0-3). Evidence is presented that neither ionic FeCHx + (x = 0, 2, 3) nor its neutral analogue FeCHx (x = 0, 2, 3) rearranges to hydridometal complexes HFeCHx (x = 1, 2), in contrast to FeCH+/FeCH which rearranges to HFeC+ and HFeC, respectively.
