Graphene and graphene oxide (GO) films have been explored to develop an efficient laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (LDI-MS) platform for the analysis of chemically and biologically important small molecules. The GO films were prepared by layer-by-layer (LBL) assembly cycles (one to ten layers) with precisely controlled thickness and surface roughness which are important structural factors for laser energy absorption capacity and laser energy transfer for efficient LDI-MS analysis… CONTINUE READING
