  1. 1. Liquid Chromatography Coupled to Mass Spectrometry : Implementation of Chemometric Optimization and Selected Applications

    Author : My Moberg; Jonas Bergquist; Karin E. Markides; Dan Bylund; Douglas B. Kell; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Analytical chemistry; liquid chromatography; mass spectrometry; tandem mass spectrometry; electrospray ionization; inductively coupled plasma; chemometrics; optimization; multivariate data analysis; design of experiments; response surface model; siderophore; azathioprine; peptide; Analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : Liquid chromatography (LC) coupled to mass spectrometry (MS) offers highly selective and sensitive analysis of a wide variety of compounds. However, the use of hyphenated experimental set-ups implies that many parameters may have an effect on the studied response. READ MORE

  2. 2. Applications of nanospray desorption electrospray ionization mass spectrometry : In situ lipid and metabolite analysis from cells to tissue

    Author : Hilde-Marléne Bergman; Ingela Lanekoff; Jonas Bergquist; Martina Marchetti-Deschmann; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Mass spectrometry; mass spectrometry imaging MSI ; nanospray desorption electrospray ionization nano-DESI ; single-cell analysis; neurotransmitter imaging; diabetic nephropathy; pneumatic nebulization; lipidomics; metabolomics; Kemi med inriktning mot analytisk kemi; Chemistry with specialization in Analytical Chemistry;

    Abstract : Ambient mass spectrometry (MS) has proved to be an important addition to the bioanalytical toolbox. These methods perform analyte sampling and ionization under atmospheric pressure, and require very little sample preparation other than the sampling process in front of the machine. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mass Spectrometry with Electrospray Ionization from an Adjustable Gap

    Author : Patrik Ek; Åsa Emmer; Johan Roeraade; Per M. Claesson; Ulrika Nilsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Electrospray ionization; mass spectrometry; nanoelectrospray; ESI; MS; chip; emitter; gap; liquid bridge; nozzle; peptides; Analytical chemistry; Analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : In this thesis the fabrication and analytical evaluation of two new electrospray emitters utilized for mass spectrometry analysis is presented. The emitters are based on a new concept, where the spray orifice can be varied in size. The thesis is based on two papers. All present-day nanoelectrospray emitters have fixed dimensions. READ MORE
