About this book

Most research and all publications in mass spectrometry address either applications or practical questions of procedure. This book, in contrast, discusses   the fundamentals of mass spectrometry. Since these basics (physics, chemistry, kinetics, and thermodynamics) were worked out in the 20th century, they are rarely addressed nowadays and young scientists have no opportunity to learn them. This book reviews a number of useful methods in mass spectrometry and explains not only the details of the methods but the theoretical underpinning.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“Fundamentals of Mass Spectrometry, edited by Kenzo Hiraoka, covers a selection of concepts, methods, and techniques relevant to mass spectrometry, approaching them mostly from a fundamental perspective. … Without hesitation, the book can be highly recommended as a primer for anyone starting or redirecting research in one of the fields covered. It provides a worthy resource for all those teaching mass spectrometry and, of course, for the practitioner intending to update basic knowledge probably gathered decades ago.” (Jürgen H. Gross, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 406, 2014)
