Combination of CI and Low EI Capabilities with High-Resolution Q-TOF GC/MS
Application Note May 31, 2019
Important applications for high-resolution gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC/MS) systems include untargeted screening approaches as well as unknown compound identification. For many classes of compounds, low energy electron ionization (EI) provides significant improvements in the relative abundance of molecular ions compared to standard (70 eV) EI.
There is also an opportunity for chemical ionization to be used as an alternative ionization source or as a complementary technique.
