About this book

Provides an overview of the principles, theories and key applications of mass spectrometry. This book describes various instrumental aspects of mass spectrometry: sources, analysers and detectors. It introduces and details tandem mass spectrometry, and places emphasis on optimal utilisation conditions.

This is a great book for everyone in the field to keep handy. (CHOICE, April 2008) "Overview of the principles, theories, and key applications of modern mass spectrometry." (Materials and Corrosion, November 2007)
