Mass Spectrometry is a powerful technique for identifying unknowns, studying molecular structure, and probing the fundamental principles of. To all readers of the first edition of Mass Spectrometry – A Textbook I would like 2 (Principles of Ionization and Ion Dissociation), Alexander.

It is used for determining masses of particles, for determining the elemental composition of a sample or molecule. The MS principle consists of ionizing chemical compounds to generate charge molecules or molecule fragments and measurement of their mass-to-charge ratio by using the one of a variety of techniques.

Mass Spectrometry is a powerful technique for identifying unknowns, studying molecular structure, and probing the fundamental principles of chemistry. The relative abundance of positively charged fragments of various mass-to-charge ratios is the characteristic feature of the molecule that serve to identify the substance.

Mass spectrometry MS is an analytical chemistry technique that helps identify the amount and type of chemicals present in a sample by measuring the mass- to-charge ratio and abundance of gas-phase ions.

A mass spectrometer generates multiple ions from the sample under investigation This molecular ion undergoes fragmentation. Each primary product ion derived from the molecular ion, in turn, undergoes fragmentation, and so on.

The ions are separated in the mass spectrometer according to their mass-to-charge ratio, and are detected in proportion to their abundance. A mass spectrum of the molecule is thus produced. It displays the result in the form of a plot of ion abundance versus mass-to-charge ratio 6. Conversion of neutral molecule into a charged molecule, preferably to a positively charged molecule. Separation of the positively charged fragments formed, based on their masses, by using electrical or magnetic field or both.

The instrument consists of three major components: For producing gaseous ions from the substance being studied. For resolving the ions into their characteristics mass components according to their mass-to-charge ratio. For detecting the ions and recording the relative abundance of each of the resolved ionic species.

With all the above components, a mass spectrometer should always perform the following processes: Electron impact EI 2. Chemical Ionisation CI 3. Fast atom bombardment FAB 4. Field ionization 5. Plasma desorption In the Electron Impact EI process, electrons are emitted from a heated filament usually made of tungsten or rhenium and are accelerated across the source by using an appropriate potential 5- V to achieve the required electron energy sufficient to ionize the molecule.

Once produced, the reagent gas ions collide with the analyte molecules producing ions through gas phase reaction processes such as proton transfer. A high-energy beam of netural atoms, typically Xe or Ar, strikes a solid sample causing desorption and ionization. It is used for large biological molecules that are difficult to get into the gas phase. FAB causes little fragmentation and usually gives a large molecular ion peak, making it useful for molecular weight determination.

The atomic beam is produced by accelerating ions from an ion source though a charge-exchange cell. The ions pick up an electron in collisions with netural atoms to form a beam of high energy atoms. Field ionization FI is a method that uses very strong electric fields to produce ions from gas-phase molecules.

It is perfectly suited for the analysis of synthetic polymers or man made polymer. Plasma desorption ionization mass spectrometry PDMS , also called fission fragment ionization, is a mass spectrometry technique in which ionization of material in a solid sample by bombarding it with ionic or neutral atoms formed as a result of the nuclear fission of a suitable nuclide, typically the californium isotope Cf. Plasma desorption: In this technique, a gas chromatograph is used to separate different compounds.

Mass spectrometry

This filament emits electrons which ionize the compounds. Mass spectrometry has both qualitative and quantitative uses. Structure elucidation 2. Detection of impurities 3. Quantitative analysis 4. Drug metabolism studies 5. Clinical, toxicological and forensic applications 6.

GC MS MS is now in very common use in analytical laboratories that study physical, chemical, or biological properties of a great variety of compounds.

Determination of molecular weight: Mass spectrometry serves as the best possible technique for the determination or confirmation of molecular weight of compounds that can be easily volatilized. Further information: History of mass spectrometry Replica of J. Thomson 's third mass spectrometer In , Eugen Goldstein observed rays in gas discharges under low pressure that traveled away from the anode and through channels in a perforated cathode , opposite to the direction of negatively charged cathode rays which travel from cathode to anode.

Goldstein called these positively charged anode rays "Kanalstrahlen"; the standard translation of this term into English is " canal rays ". Wien found that the charge-to-mass ratio depended on the nature of the gas in the discharge tube. English scientist J.

Thomson later improved on the work of Wien by reducing the pressure to create the mass spectrograph. Calutron mass spectrometers were used in the Manhattan Project for uranium enrichment. The word spectrograph had become part of the international scientific vocabulary by Once the instrument was properly adjusted, a photographic plate was inserted and exposed.

The term mass spectroscope continued to be used even though the direct illumination of a phosphor screen was replaced by indirect measurements with an oscilloscope. Aston in and respectively. Sector mass spectrometers known as calutrons were developed by Ernest O.

In , the Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to John Bennett Fenn for the development of electrospray ionization ESI and Koichi Tanaka for the development of soft laser desorption SLD and their application to the ionization of biological macromolecules, especially proteins. This one is for the measurement of carbon dioxide isotope ratios IRMS as in the carbon urea breath test A mass spectrometer consists of three components: an ion source, a mass analyzer, and a detector.

The ionizer converts a portion of the sample into ions. There is a wide variety of ionization techniques, depending on the phase solid, liquid, gas of the sample and the efficiency of various ionization mechanisms for the unknown species.

The magnitude of the deflection of the moving ion's trajectory depends on its mass-to-charge ratio. The streams of sorted ions pass from the analyzer to the detector, which records the relative abundance of each ion type. This information is used to determine the chemical element composition of the original sample i.

Surface ionization source at the Argonne National Laboratory linear accelerator The ion source is the part of the mass spectrometer that ionizes the material under analysis the analyte.

The ions are then transported by magnetic or electric fields to the mass analyzer. Techniques for ionization have been key to determining what types of samples can be analyzed by mass spectrometry. Electron ionization and chemical ionization are used for gases and vapors. In chemical ionization sources, the analyte is ionized by chemical ion-molecule reactions during collisions in the source.

Karas and F. Hillenkamp [13]. Hard ionization and soft ionization[ edit ] Quadrupole mass spectrometer and electrospray ion source used for Fenn's early work In mass spectrometry, ionization refers to the production of gas phase ions suitable for resolution in the mass analyser or mass filter.

Ionization occurs in the ion source. There are several ion sources available; each has advantages and disadvantages for particular applications. LC-MS , since at atmospheric pressure, the filaments used to generate electrons burn out rapidly. Thus EI is coupled predominantly with GC , i. GC-MS , where the entire system is under high vacuum.

Hard ionization techniques are processes which impart high quantities of residual energy in the subject molecule invoking large degrees of fragmentation i. The most common example of hard ionization is electron ionization EI.Martin, Catalysis Today 6, Plasma desorption: Marcelin, J.
