"Designed specifically for novice users of mass spectronomy, an audience that is not currently well-addressed by existing texts, this book covers the basic concepts, instruments, and techniques with cases illustrating its application in problem solving. Other books in this field focus too narrowly on instrumentation without discussing practical application, or present the information in dense discussions and tables, making the information hard to find. This book does neither, it provides practical advice and key background knowledge in a format that is easy to use"-- Provided by publisher.
"Mass Spectrometry has grown immeasurably over the last twenty years.

There are an ever-increasing number of scientists coming into contact with the technique"-- Provided by publisher.
