IMS MS coupling
|Förderung durch:||This research is founded by the German Research Foundation (DFG)|
The analysis an unknown gas mixture and the subsequent identification of the compounds by using an ion mobility spectrometer (IMS) is a difficult task. Due to several ion species, e.g. hybrid ions, can be generated in the ionization process the classification are not reliable. Coupling an IMS to a mass spectrometer (MS) offers the analysis of the occurring peaks in the IMS spectrum. Using our setup it is possible to transfer single ion clouds (peaks) of the generated IMS spectra into the MS where a corresponding mass spectrum is generated.
