major focus of the note is understanding mass spectra, so the majority of the
problem sets will involve interpretation of mass spectra of unknowns. Topics
covered includes: Interpretation of Electron Impact, Ion sources, Mass
Analyzers, MS/MS and fragmentation methods, Mass Spectrometry in the Real World,
Protein complexes and ydrogen and Deuterium Exchange, Imaging Mass Spectrometry,
2D FTICR mass spectrometry.
This book serves multiple groups of
audiences; professional, graduate students and general
readers interested in the use of modern mass spectrometry in solving critical
questions of chemical and biological sciences. The areas covered include the
analysis of drugs, metabolites, carbohydrates and protein post-translational

This guide introduces young children to mass
spectrometry and give them the opportunity to experience a modern research
laboratory. The modules in this note are highly adaptable and can be applied to
young children from the age of 6 years to 14 years.
This course note
will develop Mass Spectrometry as an analytical tool in chemistry and
biochemistry, at an advanced level. Topics covered includes ionization, mass
analyzers, ion dissociation, ion mobility, qualitative and quantitative analysis
with various applications.
