Widely used in medical research, pharmaceutical and fine chemicals industries, biological and physical sciences, and security and environmental agencies, mass spectrometry techniques are continually under development. In Practical Aspects of Trapped Ion Mass Spectrometry: Volume V, Applications of Ion Trapping Devices, an international panel of authors presents a world-wide view of the practical aspects of recent progress using trapped ion devices.

In contrast to previous texts, which have concentrated generally on a single or limited range of ion trapping techniques, a key feature of this compilation of contributions is its coverage of all the ion trapping techniques currently in use. Spanning sixteen chapters, the text examines:

  • Ion/neutral and ion/ion reactions
  • Structural characterization of proteins and peptides using quadrupole ion trap mass spectrometry, Fourier transform – ion cyclotron resonance (FT-ICR) mass spectrometry, and traveling wave ion mobility mass spectrometry
  • Ion spectroscopy and electron diffraction
  • Conformational analysis of protein isobaric charge states
  • Practical examples of trapped-ion technology that reflect the wide diversity of applications of trapped-ion devices

This text is the first detailed account of the application of new and established mass spectrometric techniques utilizing trapped or confined ions for prolonged investigation and increased sensitivity. Each chapter contains complete references and utilizes a consistent format and writing style, with all terms, acronyms, procedures, and equations thoroughly explained. The strong editorial input to the diverse sections enables readers to readily appreciate the commonalities of topics ranging from theory of instrument operation to proteins, flavonoids, atomic clocks, and single ion mass spectrometry.
