Mass Spectrometry Facility

The High Resolution Mass Spectrometry (HRMS) Facility can provide researchers with molecular weight and structural information on a variety of compounds. The instrumentation in the facility consists of a Micromass Autospec, which is a high resolution mass spectrometer (MS); a ThermoFinnigan Voyager, which is a single quadrupole MS; and a ThermoFinnigan LCQ, which is a quadrupole ion trap MS. On-campus researchers have the opportunity to analyze their own samples on the Voyager MS after participating in a short training session.

We have the following services available:

  • Nominal mass ESI-MS
  • Accurate mass measurements or HR-MS
  • GC-MS
  • Solids Probe-MS for thermally unstable and organometallic compounds
  • LC-MS
  • Tandem MS or MS-MS for structure elucidation
