Mass spectrometry is a powerful analytical tool for the determination of the chemical composition, structure and molecular weight of organic compounds. Already widely used in the life sciences, mass spectrometry has become an indispensable characterization method in polymer chemistry - in basic research as well as in industrial laboratory settings. Mass spectrometry can be integrated seamlessly with other analytical techniques such as liquid chromatography. Its sensitivity and specifity make it a versatile means for the qualitative and quantitative elucidation of polymer composition, functionality and reaction mechanisms.<br> <br> Combining an up-to-date insight into mass spectrometry polymer analysis beyond MALDI with application details of the instrumentation, this is a balanced and thorough presentation of the most important and widely used mass spectrometric methods. The book provides the state-of-the-art knowledge on mass spectrometry for the synthetically working chemist, enabling the researcher to choose the appropriate methods and instrumentations - and to assess their respective strenghths and limitations - for the characterization of polymer compounds.<br> <br> Written by the world's most proficient experts in the field, the book focuses on the latest developments, covering important technologies and applications such as ionization protocols, tandem and liquid chromatography mass spectrometry, gas-phase ion-separations, secondary ion mass spectrometry and automated data processing.<br> This book is a must-have for all Polymer and Analytical Chemists, Materials Scientists, Spectroscopists, and Chemists in Industry.
