Ion and droplet mass-to-charge measurements of electrospray from a single emitter tip were taken using an ExB type filter. The propellant used was the ionic liquid 1Ethyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate (EMI-BF4), which has three distinct anion species, BF4 , [EMI + ] [BF4 ]2, [EMI + ]2 [BF4 ]3 during electrospray operation. Theoretical calculations show that the ExB filter would be able to resolve three anion species and the coincidently extracted droplets during a voltage sweep of the… CONTINUE READING
