Toluene-Assisted APCI Using a Compact Mass Spectrometer (ASMS)


  • Toluene-assisted APCI (TAPCI) can generate (M) and (M+H)+ molecules from analytes not MS accessible by ESI or APCI.
  • Elemental formula prediction at 250 ppm accuracy and isotope distribution matching by TAMI (Tal Aviv Molecule Identifier) supports analyte identification.
  • Combining both TAPCI and TAMI on a compact single quadrupole mass spectrometer (CMS) provides a cost-effective analysis platform for a wide compound space.
