On-line desalting of crude oil in the source region of a Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer.

Abstract

The presence of dissolved metal ions in waters associated with crude oils has many negative implications for the transport, processing, and refining of petroleum. In addition, mass spectrometric analysis of sodium containing crude oil samples suffers from ionization suppression, unwanted adduct formation, and an increase in the complexity of data analysis… (More)
