This book describes the full range of techniques and applications used in mass spectrometry. Researchers in universities and industry laboratories use this versatile technique because of its ability to identify a minute amount of material quickly. The technique solves analytical problems in a huge variety of fields. The authors adopt an instructional approach and make use of recent examples to illustrate important points. This second edition includes new methods and applications that have developed in the past ten years. The authors discuss powerful methods combining mass spectrometry with newer separation techniques, the increased use of computers, and analysis of once difficult polar and large-mass compounds such as proteins using new ionization methods. The book, requiring no previous knowledge of mass spectrometry, is an ideal teaching text at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level, and will also be of considerable interest to research workers.
