Here we will investigate the theory and application of triple quadrupole GC-MS analysis which is growing in popularity. We consider the hardware set-up and the details of the spectral experiments which are used to achieve the various spectral experiment outcomes that we require.
We will also begin an investigation into interpreting the mass spectral output of a variety of mass analyser types. We will consider the tools and techniques which are available to build a picture of our analyte molecules as well as to confirm ‘near-miss’ library entries.
Tony has been doing, researching, teaching and training in analytical chemistry for the past 28 years. He comes from a pharmaceutical and polymer analysis background and continues to work with both liquid and gas phase techniques at Crawford Scientific (UK).
His main interests are the use of LC-MS and GC-MS for structural characterisation and the quantitation of trace components in complex matrices. He is professionally qualified trainer and is Technical Director of the CHROMacademy.
