Mass Spectrometry Methods Database Gets Major Update
News May 29, 2006
Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recently added 150 methods-nicknamed "recipes"-to a database already containing 255 procedures for analyzing specific synthetic polymers using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry.
The recipes provide data critical to the industrial design, manufacture and application of synthetic polymers.
They have been collected from the peer-review scientific literature and included in the NIST Synthetic Polymer MALDI Methods Online Database.
Researchers claims that, the recipes Web page has been extremely successful-it is listed as the most popular mass spectrometry site on the Web by Websbiggest.com and has been cited as a key chemistry resource by the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
