What will I learn on this course?

This three-day course is designed to present the fundamental concepts necessary to obtain high-quality data in SCAN mode from a GC-MS System for spectral interpretation purposes. The most commonly employed tools used in identifying compounds based on their mass spectra are introduced, the physical reasons for their efficiency explained, and their use reinforced through problem solving. The most common decomposition mechanisms responsible for fragment ions will also be introduced. This course is classroom based and combines a mixture of presentations to introduce the concepts with a high proportion of lab exercises to reinforce the knowledge.

If you wish to delve further into mass spectrometry in order to identify unknown spectra and evaluate MS library database search results using a modern mass spectrometer and data system, then this course for you. This provides only an introduction to mass spectral interpretation. 

Is this course for me?

This course is recommended for those who have a good background in organic chemistry and at least six months experience as a GC-MS operator 

Course Venue

Agilent Centre of Excellence, The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK
