Principles of mass spectrometry will be provided including description of hardware and software. Basic principles of ion fragmentation will be explained and interpretation of MS spectra generated by electron ionization will be covered in more detail. Current ion sources, analyzators, and detectors will be discussed. Hyphenated techniques, specifically, GC-MS and LC-MS will be covered.
