Tandem Mass Spectrometry (MS/MS)

Mass spectrometers are commonly combined with separation devices such as gas chromatographs (GC) and liquid chromatographs (LC). The GC or LC separates the components in a mixture, and the components are introduced, one by one, into the mass spectrometer. MS/MS is an analogous technique where the first-stage separation device is another mass spectrometer.

Fraction base-KMD plots for a high-MW - S3000 - MSTips - 283

High molecular weight polymers are often MS-silent due to their inherent high dispersity (DM) or detected in the high mass range with low resolving power. An "on-plate" alkaline degradation has thus been developed as a sample pre-treatment on the MALDI target with tenths of ng of polymer to cut long industrial polyester chains into short oligomers amenable to MALDI-HRMS.
