  • A Beginner's Guide to Mass Spectral Interpretation

    Terrence A. Lee

    This book is a logical, step-by-step guide to identification of organic compounds by mass spectrometry. The book is organized into chapters covering the major types of organic compounds, including alcohols, acids and esters, aldehydes and ketones, ethers, hydrocarbons, halogenated compounds, amines and amides, and sulfur-containing compounds. In each chapter, the mechanisms of the major fragmentation pathways are discussed, with reference to several simple sample compounds. By teaching the user to recognize typical fragmentations, the book removes the need to search databases, often limited, of electronic spectra. Key features of the book include:

    * 200 representative spectra of common organic compounds
    * Functional group approach to mass spectra interpretation
    * Appendix of 'unknown' spectra with step-by-step guide to identification

    This book is a must for anyone who needs to identify organic molecules by mass spectrometry but does not need to know the detailed workings of a mass spectrometer.

  • A Handbook of Derivatives for Mass Spectrometry

    Authors: Vladimir Zaikin and John Halket

    Chemical derivatisation of functional groups has proved popular since the beginning of organic mass spectrometry as a means to enhance the stability and volatility of the analytes as well as facilitating structure elucidation. This book provides comprehensive information on the wide range of derivatisation methods. Each chapter looks at a particular area of derivatisation and includes extensive references to the literature for further research where necessary. There are nearly 1800 references, which, as well as full bibliographic information, include chapter/paper titles where appropriate and Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to allow easy retrieval of the online version of the referenced publication. The emergence of atmospheric pressure ionisation and other soft ionisation techniques has not diminished the interest is such chemical techniques, as witnessed by the many chemical tags used in quantitative proteomics (Chapter 9). The last two chapters, a substantial part of the book, deal with derivatisation for use with soft ionisation of both small and large molecules.

  • A History of European Mass Spectrometry

    Edited by Keith R. Jennings

    The construction of Thompson’s mass spectrograph in Cambridge almost exactly a century ago followed by Aston’s improved instruments and his pioneering work on non-radioactive isotopes is widely known. In the sixty years or so since then, European scientists and engineers have made many major contributions to the development of new instruments and techniques. Accounts of these contributions in the scientific literature necessarily give little idea of the contributors themselves or of the difficulties that had to be overcome before success was achieved.

    Most newcomers to mass spectrometry in the last ten years will have little concept of the difficulties faced in obtaining the mass spectra of four solid samples during a working day before the invention of the vacuum lock probe. This was followed by several hours of counting spectra and trying to interpret them. Many will never have seen a magnetic deflection instrument and will be familiar only with mass spectrometers having both the operation of the instrument and the interpretation of the data under computer control.

    This book aims to give an insight into how some of the more important developments came about, from the advent of the first commercial instruments to the present day. The various accounts, several of which contain personal reminiscences, both provide a human background to these developments and convey the excitement of being part of the European mass spectrometry community during this period.

  • Applications of Inorganic Mass Spectrometry

    John R. De Laeter

    A thorough assessment of the applications of inorganic mass spectrometry Mass spectrometry is a powerful analytical technique used to identify unknown compounds, to quantify known materials, and to elucidate the structural and chemical properties of molecules.  Inorganic mass spectrometry focuses on the analysis of metals and elements rather than organic compounds.  Applications of Inorganic Mass Spectrometry describes developments in mass spectrometric instrumentation, together with applications in metrology, nuclear science, cosmochemistry, geoscience, environmental science, and planetary science.  Divided into two parts, the first part of the book reviews the numerous technological advances that have occurred in mass spectrometry since 1947, a date regarded as the birth of modern mass spectrometry.  The second part offers an up-to-date description of the many applications of inorganic mass spectrometry and includes a comprehensive set of references for each application.  It is doubtful that any other analytical instrument has had such a significant impact in so many fields of science as mass spectrometry.  Applications of Inorganic Mass Spectrometry provides researchers, scientists, and engineers with an essential reference for this vital science.

  • Introduction to Mass Spectrometry: Instrumentation, Applications, and Strategies for Data Interpretation

    J. Throck Watson & O. David Sparkman-4th Edition

    Completely revised and updated, this text provides an easy–to–read guide to the concept of mass spectrometry and demonstrates its potential and limitations. Written by internationally recognised experts and utilising "real life" examples of analyses and applications, the book presents real cases of qualitative and quantitative applications of mass spectrometry. Unlike other mass spectrometry texts, this comprehensive reference provides systematic descriptions of the various types of mass analysers and ionisation, along with corresponding strategies for interpretation of data. The book concludes with a comprehensive 3000 references.  

    This multi–disciplined text covers the fundamentals as well as recent advance in this topic, providing need–to–know information for researchers in many disciplines including pharmaceutical, environmental and biomedical analysis who are utilizing mass spectrometry

  • Mass Spectrometry: Principles and Applications

    Edmond de Hoffmann and Vincent Stroobant-3rd Edition

    The latest edition of a highly successful textbook, Mass Spectrometry, Third Edition provides students with a complete overview of the principles, theories and key applications of modern mass spectrometry. All instrumental aspects of mass spectrometry are clearly and concisely described: sources, analysers and detectors. Tandem mass spectrometry is introduced early on and then developed in more detail in a later chapter. Emphasis is placed throughout the text on optimal utilisation conditions. Various fragmentation patterns are described together with analytical information that derives from the mass spectra. 

    This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and has been redesigned to give the book a more contemporary look. As with previous editions it contains numerous examples, references and a series of exercises of increasing difficulty to encourage student understanding. Updates include: Increased coverage of MALDI and ESI, more detailed description of time of flight spectrometers, new material on isotope ratio mass spectrometry, and an expanded range of applications.

    Mass Spectrometry, Third Edition is an invaluable resource for all undergraduate and postgraduate students using this technique in departments of chemistry, biochemistry, medicine,pharmacology, agriculture, material science and food science. It is also of interest for researchers looking for an overview of the latest techniques and developments.
