In the studies of origins of life, plausible synthetic reaction pathways to form biological relevant molecules, or building blocks of proto‐bilayer lipids, protein, RNA, and DNA in the primitive environment have been investigated intensively. We are focusing on studying syntheses of primitive molecular set, including sugar, amino acid, and their analogues, which were selected by further functional and informational constrains.
Researchers hope to detect those targets, even they were ultra‐trace comparing to major components (source molecules and undefined byproducts). Analytical point of the views, it is the worst situation.
Overcoming the Challenges of Analysing Ionic Polar Pesticides in FoodPoster
Here, the novel application of the Waters’ Torus DEA column is presented, showing the improved performance of a UPLC-MS/MS method for the underivatised
analysis of glyphosate and a selection of other anionic pesticides.

The Use of Pyrolysis/GCMS and Newly Developed Libraries to assist in Characterizing Complex Polymeric SamplesPoster
Pyrolysis-GC/MS is an effective tool in introducing and analyzing polymers. But since the polymer must be broken down to volatile segments in order to be sent to the GC, identification by the Mass Spec does not look at the original polymer, but only the fragments. This poster will look at a unique library designed to work with the existing NIST library, however contains averaged spectra of pyrolyzed polymers so it can be used to directly identify the original polymer sample.READ MORE
