The book begins by covering the basic principles of both gas chromatography (GC) and mass spectrometry (MS) to the extent necessary to understand and deal with the data generated in a GC-MS analysis. The focus then turns to the particular requirements created by a direct combination of these two techniques into a single instrumentation system. The data generated and their use are covered in detail. The role of the computer and its specific software receives special attention, especially in the matter of compound identification via mass spectral search techniques. GC-MS-computer instrumentation has reached such a plateau of excellence today that the present commercial systems will not be obsolete for a long time to come. Therefore, a detailed description of these systems is not only informative but is also pertinent to the subject matter of this book. Finally, representative applications and results obtained with GC-MS-computer techniques are presented and chosen in such a way as to permit extrapolation of specific applications to similar problems encountered by the reader. To aid the reader in mastering the subject matter and increase understanding, interpretation problems and suggested readings are included. The format is instructional, informative and application-oriented with material presented in such a way as to be useful to a broad spectrum of people. The book serves as a text in its own right. The software package Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry: A Knowledge Base, by F.A. Settle, Jr. and M.A. Pleva provides rapid access to a wealth of current information in the GC-MS field. Its three diskettes (51/4 inch) allow the user three ways to access: the index mode, the tree mode and a keyword search mode. The package may be purchased separately and is available for the IBM-PC and compatibles. The software provides a valuable supplement to the book.

This series of books provides coverage of all of the majoranalytical techniques and their application in the most importantareas of physical, life and materials science. Each text ispresented in an open learning/distance learning style, in which thelearning objectives are clearly identified. The reader'sunderstanding of the material is constantly evaluated by the use ofself-assessment and discussion questions. The combination of gas chromatography with mass spectrometry(GC-MS) has been a routine analytical tool for many years, whilethe related hybrid technique of liquid chromatography-massspectrometry (LC-MS) is a rather more recent development. However,with the advent of new interfacing technology, the benefits of thispowerful hybrid analytical method are now currently being realised,as witnessed by the exponential growth in applications of thistechnique in both the chemical and life sciences. The topics covered in this text include the following: * The basic principles of liquid chromatography and massspectrometry * The limitations of the component techniques when used inisolation, and how a combination of the two allows these to beovercome * Descriptions of the various approaches, including thermospray,electrospray and atmospheric pressure chemical ionization, whichare used to interface the two techniques, along with the advantagesand disadvantages of each system * Illustrative examples of the applications of LC-MS, including themolecular weight and structure determinations of both biopolymersand low-molecular-compounds, along with the development ofquantitative methods Key features include: * The provision of many discussion and self-assessment questionsthroughout the text, thus providing opportunities for testing thereader's understanding of the subject matter * Presented in the AnTS (open learning/distance learning) style, itis ideal for use as both a self-study guide and as the basis of ataught course * A comprehensive bibliography, including books, papers/articles injournals and on websites, along with specific references for theindividual chapters, to guide the reader to more specialised textsand original sources Written with a student audience in mind, this text will provide aninvaluable introduction to this increasingly important analyticaltandem technique.

During recent years there has been increasing interest in the value of a number of chemical and physical-chemical analytical methods for the detection and characterization of microorganisms. Furthermore, such methods are currently used in studies on microbial metabolic processes, on the role of microorganisms in the turnover of inorganic and organic compounds, and on the impact on environmental changes by microbial activity. Moreover, the introduction of some of these methods not only shortens the analytical time period compared to ·'traditional" techniques, but also improves the analytical quality. Mass spectrometry (MS) combined with chromatographic inlet systems, particularly gas chromatography (GC), belongs to those methods which during recent years have established their value for the above-mentioned purposes. The present volume starts with basic chapters on the principles for MS and common inlet systems, particulary Gc. It discusses applications of these techniques to a number of microbiological disciplines, e.g., ecologi cal and medical microbiology. Emphasis is laid on organic compound classes vii viii / PREFACE of special relevance to microbiology, e.g., volatiles, lipids, amino acids, peptides and carbohydrates. Some compound classes of a more general biochemical rather than specific microbiological importance, e.g., steroids and nucleotides, are dealt with briefly. The editors wish to thank all those who have contributed to this book. We hope it will stimulate further research in this futuristic field and will be of practical value.

Although GC-MS (gas chromatography–mass spectrometry) finds applications in fields as diverse as the food processing industry, medicine, pharmacology, and environmental analysis, the few works that are dedicated to this use of mass spectrometry are generally highly complex and theoretical. Emphasizing the practical aspects of GC-MS, without neglecting the fundamental theory, Introduction to GC-MS Coupling addresses both novice and experienced users of this technique. It presents GC-MS in a clear, instructive way and proposes solutions for the difficulties classically encountered by users. The book begins with the core principles of gas chromatography and its specific uses with MS detectors. It discusses generalities of mass spectrometry, including the various types of MS detectors and insight into the vacuum necessary for efficient operation. Chapters cover the types of analyzers used in GC-MS and their functioning principles, with a focus on the commonly used quadrupolar analyzers, as well as the implementation, advantages, and limits of various modes of acquisition in GC-MS. The text also compares performance and limitations of quadrupolar analyzers. The author includes a full chapter on quantification using GC-MS, a topic that can be puzzling for many chemists. Encouraging a critical approach to databases, he compares laboratory-made and commercial mass spectra databases, and describes a database research algorithm. The final chapter examines mass spectra interpretation, covering chemistry concepts such as inductive and mesomeric effects required to understand dissociation pathways, and presents a global strategy for mass spectra interpretation.
