    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...

    On-line real-time analysis of organic compounds in mainstream tobacco smoke: An optimised coupling between a commercial smoke machine and fast photo-ionisation time-of-flight mass spectrometry

    University of Augsburg, Analytical Chemistry, Institute of Physics, Augsburg, Germany
    Since the chemical properties of tobacco smoke are changing very rapidly during the smoking process, time-resolved analysis is required to better understand the chemistry of smoking. Puff-resolved analysis of tobacco smoke can be done by conventional...
  3. CORESTA Meeting, Smoke Science/Product Technology, Stratford-upon-Avon, 2005, SSPT 42

    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...
