The latest edition of a highly successful textbook, MassSpectrometry, Third Edition provides students with a completeoverview of the principles, theories and key applications of modernmass spectrometry. All instrumental aspects of mass spectrometryare clearly and concisely described: sources, analysers anddetectors. Tandem mass spectrometry is introduced early on and thendeveloped in more detail in a later chapter. Emphasis is placedthroughout the text on optimal utilisation conditions. Variousfragmentation patterns are described together with analyticalinformation that derives from the mass spectra.
This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated and hasbeen redesigned to give the book a more contemporary look. As withprevious editions it contains numerous examples, references and aseries of exercises of increasing difficulty to encourage studentunderstanding. Updates include: Increased coverage of MALDI andESI, more detailed description of time of flight spectrometers, newmaterial on isotope ratio mass spectrometry, and an expanded rangeof applications.
Mass Spectrometry, Third Edition is an invaluableresource for all undergraduate and postgraduate students using thistechnique in departments of chemistry, biochemistry, medicine,pharmacology, agriculture, material science and food science. It isalso of interest for researchers looking for an overview of thelatest techniques and developments.
