"The authors have done a great job…providing invaluableinformation on a complex topic in a single volume…thisis an important, comprehensive, and well-written description."(CHOICE, January 2006)
Published in 1989, the First Edition of this book, originallyentitled Quadrupole Storage Mass Spectrometry, quickly became thedefinitive reference in analytical laboratories worldwide. Revisedto reflect scientific and technological advances and newapplications in the field, the Second Edition includes new chapterscovering:
One additional chapter discusses the Rosetta mission, a "cometchaser" that was sent on a ten-year journey in 2004 to study thecomet Churyumov-Gerasimenko using, among other instruments, a GC/MSsystem incorporating a specially designed ion trap massspectrometer.
This comprehensive reference also includes discussions of thehistory of the quadrupole ion trap, the theory of quadrupole massspectrometry, the dynamics of ion-trapping chemistry in thequadrupole ion trap, the cylindrical ion trap, miniature traps, andlinear ion traps. Complete with conclusions and references, thisprimer effectively encapsulates the body of knowledge on quadrupoleion trap mass spectrometry.
With its concise descriptions of the theory of ion motion andthe principles of operation,
Quadrupole Ion Trap Mass Spectrometry, Second Edition is idealfor new users of quadrupole devices, as well as for scientists,researchers, and graduate and post-doctoral students working inanalytical laboratories.
