Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry is used to show that Sc(CD_3)_2^+ reacts with saturated alkanes larger than ethane in the gas phase by a four center σ-bond metathesis reaction with methane elimination. These processes are facile at room temperature, involve little or no activation energy, and occur preferentially with primary carbon-hydrogen bonds.
