Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An excellent source of qualitative information on MS for postgraduates and professionals in the fields of research … .A reasonably priced book and we would recommend it." (The Higher Education Academy Physical Sciences Centre, December 2008)

"Featuring numerous examples, references, and a series of exercises of increasing difficulty, this updated edition now includes additional coverage." (Materials and Corrosion, November 2007)


From The Critics
Translated from the French edition of 1999 (de Hoffmann teaches at the Catholic University, Louvain; Stroobant is with the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research), the second edition features an overall revision, new references to websites, and expanded coverage of biological applications and new techniques. Each chapter covers the history of study and technique of the topic, with an extensive list of references provided. Study questions and their answers are included, making this book appropriate for advanced undergraduate courses. Among the topics covered are ion sources, mass analyzers, tandem mass spectrometry, coupling, fragmentation reactions, and analysis of biomolecules. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
