This document contains recommendations for terminology in mass spectrometry. Development of standard terms dates back to 1974 when the IUPAC Commission on Analytical Nomenclature issued recommendations on mass spectrometry terms and definitions. In 1978, the IUPAC Commission on Molecular Structure and Spectroscopy updated and extended the recommendations and made further recommendations regarding symbols, acronyms, and abbreviations. The IUPAC Physical Chemistry Division Commission on Molecular… 

A ‘Periodic Table’ of mass spectrometry instrumentation and acronyms

The development and maturation of mass spectrometry (MS) technology hasmeant thatMS users are no longer required to be experts in this field. With the increasing popularity of mass spectrometry (MS)

Interpreting and propagating the uncertainty of the standard atomic weights (IUPAC Technical Report)

Abstract In 2009, the Commission on Isotopic Abundances and Atomic Weights (CIAAW) of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) introduced the interval notation to express the

Tutorial review on validation of liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry methods: part I.

Current controlled vocabularies are insufficient to uniquely map molecular entities to mass spectrometry signal

A novel nomenclature is proposed that spans the range of the required granularity to describe MS data processing from the perspective of the molecular provenance of the MS signal and provides a chain of succinct and unique terms spanning the signal created by a charged molecule down through each of its constituent subsignals.

Plasma Sources in Analytical Mass Spectrometry

Abstract The recent interest in gas discharge ion sources for analytical mass spectrometry illustrates the often cyclic nature of scientific progress. The ion source capabilities of a gas discharge

Ion suppression in mass spectrometry.

Options for minimizing or correcting ion suppression are presented, which include enhanced specimen cleanup, chromatographic changes, reagent modifications, and effective internal standardization.

Molecular weight determination of megadalton DNA electrospray ions using charge detection time-of-flight mass spectrometry.

The on-axis single-ion detection configuration provides a duty cycle of nearly 100% and extends the practical application of electrospray mass spectrometry to the analysis of very large molecules with relatively inexpensive instrumentation.

A study of ion suppression effects in electrospray ionization from mobile phase additives and solid-phase extracts.

A simple setup for quantification of ion suppression/enhancement of solid-phase liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry (SPE/LC/MS/MS) systems was described and it was demonstrated that a clean up of plasma extracts based on ion exchange leads to minimal ion suppressed for the compounds that were investigated.

Separation techniques hyphenated to electrospray‐tandem mass spectrometry in proteomics: Capillary electrophoresis versus nanoliquid chromatography

Capillary electrophoresis coupled to mass spectrometry (MS) has been taken into consideration sporadically due to the highly efficient separation and ability to handle low sample amount, yet classified as being less sensitive with respect to analyte concentration.

Determination of boldenone sulfoconjugate and related steroid sulfates in equine urine by high-performance liquid chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry.

Sulfoconjugated anabolic steroids were separated by micro-bore high-performance liquid chromatography and full-scan daughter ion spectra ofboldenone sulfate could be obtained up to 17 days after a therapeutic dose of boldenone undecylenate to a horse.

A novel ion funnel for focusing ions at elevated pressure using electrospray ionization mass spectrometry

The ability to effectively focus and transmit ions from relatively high pressure ion sources is a key factor that affects sensitivity and dynamic range in mass spectrometry. To improve upon the mass
