How to Identify Compounds in a Mass Spectrum

25 September 2017

In-line mass detection has become a powerful addition to the flash chemist's toolbox. While this technical advance in flash chromatography has helped chemists detect and isolate pure compounds with a known molecular weight, verifying the identity of that compound can sometimes be a challenge as the detected mass may not match that which you expect due to fragmentation and/or adduct formation.

In this post on the Flash Purification Blog, Bob Bickler offers some assistance in determining adducts and fragments, and includes a great lookup table for identifying adducts and fragments in both positive and negative mode.
