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.

News Mass Spectrometry

  • 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

  • The fingerprint of the diatom

    In today’s laboratories, elemental analysis methods are used for more than just determining total metal content in various sample matrices. They have become an important tool for life science research in environmental science, medicine and biology. more

  • Mercury in the environment

    Mercury is undisputedly one of the most toxic elements. In 2013, the Minamata Convention on Mer-cury to restrict the production and emission of this heavy metal was adopted in Geneva. It regulates the production, use and storage of mercury. For example, new mines may no longer be built and existing ones must be closed within 15 years. more

  • The Third Dimension

    Proteins play a fundamental role in our day-to-day lives. Thanks to proteins we can speak, move about and think; they protect us from disease and repair damage to our bodies. Proteins are also becoming more popular as active pharmaceutical ingredients: in 2012, the market share of biopharmaceuticals in Germany was 21% (figures from German-language report “Medical Biotechnology in Germany 2013”). more
