Mass Spectrometry

This unit explains the basic principles of mass spectral analysis, identifies the major parts of a typical GC/MS system, and describes the major steps of sample introduction, ionization, fragmentation, separation by mass, detection of ions, and data processing. It describes a typical mass spectrum and a typical total ion chromatogram along with the use of the system for controlling the GC/MS and for data processing, including performing library searches of mass spectra.
