Transport properties of light ions in gases in ac electric fields are investigated by solving the time-dependent Boltzmann's equation. We focus on the way in which transport properties including diffusion are influenced by the ion-neutral mass ratio as well as the field frequency. Calculations of transient relaxation phenomena in step-function fields are performed as an aid to understanding the complex temporal profiles of ion transport coefficients in ac electric fields.
