  • Various ionization methods and MS/MS techniques: APCI, APPI, CID, ECD, ETD, IS-CAD

Representative Research Case

Development of comprehensive analysis method for water-soluble and water-insoluble hazardous organic substances in PM 2.5 airborne particles

To solve the problem of fine airborne dust posing a major threat to national health, an analytical platform for determining the composition and content of the complex organic matter in fine aerosols was developed, and more accurate and valuable information on the aerosol-derived hazardous organic compounds has been acquired.

In-depth compositional analysis of water-soluble and water-insoluble hazardous organic substances in PM 2.5 airborne particles were collected during the winter season using ultra-high resolution 15 T FT-ICR MS

Application

  • Tundra soil organic matter analysis
  • Artificial humic acid analysis
