Application of single-photon ionisation time-of-flight mass spectrometry (SPI-TOFMS) with an electron beam pumped excimer light source for the on-line detection of organic compounds in mainstream smoke
University of Augsburg, Analytical Chemistry, Institute of Physics, Augsburg, Germany
Single-photon ionisation (SPI) with vacuum-ultraviolet (VUV) light allows an efficient and soft ionisation of organic compounds yielding mass spectra with no or only few fragment peaks. Selectivity is provided via the ionisation potential (IP), as...
