Mass spectrometry

The use of mass spectrometry as an analytical method has become indispensable in laboratories and the process industry. The wide range of application scenarios and the possibility of combining them with separation methods such as chromatography make it an all-rounder in chemical analysis. The areas covered are manifold, whether in diagnostics, biotechnology, trace analysis or environmental chemistry, mass spectrometers are always used to obtain exact results.

  • It's snowing plastic

    The snow may be melting, but it is leaving pollution behind in the form of micro- and nano-plastics according to a McGill study that was recently published in Environmental Pollution. The pollution is largely due to the relatively soluble plastics found in antifreeze products (polyethylene glycols) more

  • Oxidation processes in combustion engines and in the atmosphere take the same routes

    Alkanes, an important component of fuels for combustion engines and an important class of urban trace gases, react via another reaction pathways than previously thought. These hydrocarbons, formerly called paraffins, thus produce large amounts of highly oxygenated compounds that can contribute to or more

  • New ion trap to create the world's most accurate mass spectrometer

    Mass spectrometers are widely used to analyze highly complex chemical and biological mixtures. Skoltech scientists have developed a new version of a mass spectrometer that uses rotation frequencies of ionized molecules in strong magnetic fields to measure masses with higher accuracy (FT ICR). The te more

Mass Spectrometry and Interpreting Mass Spectra

For the fourth in the analytical chemistry series, we turn to mass spectrometry. So far, we’ve looked at how chemists can determine the presence of particular bonds present in molecules with infrared spectroscopy, and how they can gain information about the structure of molecules using hydrogen and more

The Philae Lander

You’ve probably heard the great news over the weekend that the European Space Agency’s Philae lander has awoken from its 7 month slumber on Comet 67P, and is once again relaying collected data back to Earth. You might have less of an idea, however, of what this data is, and why it’s important. This more

Why Does Asparagus Make Urine Smell?

The latest food chemistry graphic looks at the chemistry of asparagus – specifically, why it causes the urine of some (but not all) people to smell. Over the past forty years several papers have been published on the subject, and several studies undertaken, to try and determine the chemical compound more
