Liquid Chromatography Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry: Principles, Tools, and Applications for Accurate Mass Analysis
DescriptionTime of flight mass spectrometry identifies the elements of a compound by subjecting a sample of ions to a strong electrical field. Illuminating emerging analytical techniques in high-resolution mass spectrometry, Liquid Chromatography Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry shows readers how to analyze unknown and emerging contaminants—such as antibiotics, steroids, analgesics—using advanced mass spectrometry techniques. The text combines theoretical discussion with concrete examples, making it suitable for analytical chemists, environmental chemists, organic chemists, medicinal chemists, university research chemists, and graduate and post-doctorate students.

"Throughout the book, theoretical discussions are illustrated with concrete examples that show readers how to perform their own accurate analyses. By arming chemists with the principles, tools, and applications of LC/TOF mass spectrometry, this book enables them to apply the most advanced techniques to analyse unknown and emerging contaminants with the greatest level of accuracy possible." (Chemistry Journals, 11 April 2011)"
"This book is an important contribution to the growing field of accurate mass measurement by TOF MS
for analysis of "small molecules". Generally, it can be recommended for all scientists working on small molecule analysis by mass spectrometry." (Zentralblatt Math, 2010)
