Objectives and Content
The course sums up methods and techniques in organic mass spectrometry. Different types of instrument and the use of the instruments will be compared. Systematisation of fragmentation will be discussed and interpretation of spectra will be emphasised. Structural determination of complicated and polyfunctional molecules will be illustrated.
- Must have broad knowledge about central topics, theory, problems, processes, tools and methods in MS
- Must have knowledge about the uniqueness of mass spectrometry and its place in the community
- can compare methods and techniques in mass spectrometry.
- Can choose the best-fitted method and technique based on molecule properties and analyze purpose.
- Can identify and compare fragmentation mechanisms.
- Can interpret spectra of mono- and polyfunctional organic compounds.
- Can draw conclusions about unknown structures on the basis of their mass spectra.]
