Mass spectrometry
Mass spectrometry is an analytical technique that identifies the chemical composition of a compound or sample based on the mass-to-charge ratio of charged particles. A sample undergoes chemical fragmentation, thereby forming charged particles (ions). The ratio of charge to mass of the particles is calculated by passing them through electric and magnetic fields in a mass spectrometer. The links shown on this page feature the key word ′Mass spectrometry’ in their stories:
