With contributions from noted experts from Europe and North America, Mass
Spectrometry Instrumentation, Interpretation, and Applications serves as a
forum to introduce students to the whole world of mass spectrometry and to
the many different perspectives that each scientific field brings to its use.
The book emphasizes the use of this important analytical technique in many
different fields, including applications for organic and inorganic chemistry,
forensic science, biotechnology, and many other areas. After describing the
history of mass spectrometry, the book moves on to discuss instrumentation,
theory, and basic applications.
