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.
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.
