The fragmentation dynamics in the CH3+H+H channel arising from the dissociative recombination of protonated methane, CH5+, has been investigated with an imaging detector at the CRYRING storage ring. The experimental results imply that this channel proceeds via two-step break-up in which the intermediate CH4 molecule is sufficiently internally excited to further fragment. These observations could go some way to explaining the discrepancy in results reported from ion storage rings and FALP apparatus.
