Fast on-line tobacco smoke analysis with Photo Ionisation - Time-of-Flight-Mass Spectrometry - Part 1: Scientific background and basic principles
University of Augsburg, Analytical Chemistry, Institute of Physics, Augsburg, Germany
Mass spectrometry (MS) with soft ionisation (i.e. non fragmenting ionisation) allows a direct on-line monitoring of organic compounds in complex gaseous matrices such as tobacco smoke. Photo ionisation (PI) methods are particularly well suited for...
