Ion mobility spectrometry: a review. Part 1. Structural analysis by mobility measurement


Ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) is an electrophoretic technique that allows ionised analyte molecules to be separated on the basis of their mobilities in the gas phase. The technique has found widespread application as a detector, most noticeably for chemical warfare agents on the battlefield and for explosives and narcotics at ports and airports. The… (More)
