News Apr 08, 2010
Dionex Corporation announces the release of the updated mass spectrometry (MS) applications guide.
The new applications presented in the MS Applications Guide offer analytical choices for separation scientists in the fields of water testing, health and safety, chemicals, and food and beverages.
The update provides 12 new environmental and industrial applications, including urea in ultrapure water, carbamates in water, alkylphenol ethoxylates, phenolic acids, FA and TFA, nicotine and metabolites, glyphosates, perchlorate in baby formula and milk, melamine and cyanuric acid, and ionic liquids by IC-MS and LC-MS. The MS Applications Guide presents an IC-MS/MS method for the ultratrace-level perchlorate analysis in both liquid and powdered baby formula.
The methodology presented in the guide highlights the interface of liquid chromatography techniques, such as high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC or LC) or ion chromatography (IC) and mass spectrometry as powerful analytical tools for the detection and characterization of compounds.
