Whereas small and large ions are readily detected in all localities, intermediate ions have been reported only in a limited number of cases. The mobility of this class of ions lies generally in the interval from 0.01 to 0.1 cm s-1 (V cm-1)-1. In general, the present understanding of the nature and origin of intermediate ions is limited.
