Identification of Unknowns

A reliable identification of unknown compounds requires many years of experience. Some of the employees of our mass spectrometry unit can look back at over ten years of relevant experience.

For unknowns that can be analysed by means of CG-MS, we can utilise a spectral database with over 200.000 representative EI-spectra for identification. For compounds that can be measured by LC-MS we use our high resolution and accurate mass orbital trap. With the aide of the spectra generated by the orbitrap, we gain reliable information about the chemical composition of the compound in question. This information can be used for a data base query. Furthermore, we have sufficient experience to deduce structural information from fragmentation spectra.
