Enables readers to select and implement the most effective mass spectrometry methods

For decades, mass spectrometry has been the dominant force in analytical chemistry, offering unparalleled levels of sensitivity and selectivity for trace analysis and an impressive range of applications across numerous research disciplines. Now in one expertly written, edited, and organized reference, the Mass Spectrometry Handbook brings together the best tested and proven mass spectrometry methods available.

The Handbook provides a unique reference that allows for easy access to a variety of real-world applications that involve mass spectrometry. Each chapter in the Handbook provides essential background and history, detailed analytical methodology, and valuable references. Readers will obtain a step-by-step guide through the most popular and effective methods for each application. The exciting applications—starting with life sciences and culminating with specialized analytical techniques—are featured:

  • Biotechnology/Proteins

  • Environmental

  • Pharmaceutical

  • Geological

  • Clinical Analysis

  • Archaeology

  • Forensics

  • Surface Analysis

  • Space Exploration

  • Polymers

  • Homeland Security

  • Analytical Techniques

  • Food Analysis

Each chapter has been written by one or more leading international experts in the field of mass spectrometry. These authors have thoroughly examined the current literature in order to present the state of the technology. Moreover, based on their own firsthand laboratory experience, they explain why particular methods work or don't work for particular research objectives. References at the end of each chapter serve as a gateway to the most important studies in the field.

With its tremendous breadth and depth of coverage, the Mass Spectrometry Handbook is an excellent resource for practicing mass spectrometrists as well as for novices who want to quickly master the many applications and methods of mass spectrometry.

“In summary, this handbook presents research from a variety of areas tied together by the common thread of mass spectrometry. The authors present their works in a manner that is accessible to beginning researchers and include sufficient references to allow in depth exploration of the topic. More seasoned scientists could also benefit from this book as they venture into new areas of research.” (Journal of American Society for Mass Spectrometry, 6 October 2012)
