Abstract

Considerable attention has been focused on new methods for the study of biologically important non- volatile and thermally unstable molecules. For trace amounts, mass spectrometry provides the only means for investigation of their structure and identification through the determination of molecular weight. Many of these compounds are unstable and readily transformed or decomposed, therefore new ionization techniques for mass spectrometry had to be developed. The present volume reflects this situation. The most important ionization techniques in current use have been considered and the latest developments in the instrumentation in high molecular weight mass spectrometry have been illustrated. Most of the book, however, has been dedicated to the identification of molecules of biological and biomedical interest, and of polymers, as well as to the use of mass spectrometry in the study of structural problems and in research for applications. This volume includes the lectures given at a course, organized within the framework of the Training and Education programme of the Joint Research Centre of the European Communities, and held at the Ispra Establishment from 5th to 9th September 1983, with most of the lectures, updated by the authors during 1984.
