Mass spectrometry has undergone a great deal of development as an empirical subject and many useful approaches to the analysis and identification of organic molecules have been developed without a detailed understanding of theory of ion behaviour. This is also the way in which the subject is usually approached and it is the tack adopted here. That does not mean to say that an understanding of ion behaviour is not important - it is, but that understanding is still being developed and this book is designed for those wishing to use mass spectrometry now. To provide a good understanding of mass spectrometry, the basic theory of ion formation and behaviour, the instrumentation and the interpretation of the spectra of organic molecules are covered. There are also sections covering combined gas chromatography - mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography - mass spectrometry, which are two of the most powerful techniques available to the analytical chemist.

Covers the basic theory of ion formation and behavior, the instrumentation for mass spectrometry, and the interpretation of the spectra of organic molecules. Describes also combined gas chromatography (mass spectrometry and liquid chromatography) mass spectrometry, which are among the most powerful techniques available to the analytical chemist. Text approaches mass spectrometry empirically, explaining the many useful techniques for the analysis and identification of organic molecules without requiring detailed theoretical knowledge of ion behavior. Presupposed on the reader's part is familiarity of basic organic chemistry.From the Back Cover:
The second edition of this ACOL text, which was first published in 1987, continues to provide the analyst with an excellent introduction to mass spectrometry by the adoption of a practical approach in which the theoretical and operational aspects of this major analytical technique are combined. In the revised edition of this text, the author has expanded upon and reorganised the earlier material in order to bring it completely up to date. In addition to the basic theory of ion formation and behaviour, instrumentation and the interpretation of the spectra of simple organic compounds, this new edition reflects a number of the very important developments which have taken place in this field since the late 1980s. These include the burgeoning area of hyphenated mass spectral techniques, including gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), liquid chromatography-gas chromatography (LC-GS) and tandem mass spectrometry (MS-MS). Associated newer methods of interfacing, such as electrospray and ionspray, particle-beam and continuous flow coupling and atmospheric-pressure chemical ionisation are also covered. The current widespread use of computing techniques in structure elucidation is also considered, along with the important area of inorganic mass spectrometry for analysing surfaces, bulk solids and solutions. Analytical Chemistry By Open Learning This series provides a uniquely comprehensive and integrated coverage of analytical chemistry, covering basic concepts, classical methods, instrumental techniques and applications. The learning objectives of each text are clearly identified and the student's understanding of the material is constantly challenged by self-assessment questions with reinforcing or remedial responses. The overall objective of Analytical Chemistry by Open Learning is to enable the student to select and apply appropriate methods and techniques to solve analytical problems, and to interpret the results obtained. We are grateful to Dr Roger Taylor of the University of Sussex, UK for supplying the spectrum of fullerene used on the front cover.
