Mass spectrometry is an analytical technique that helps in identifying the quanity and type of chemical substances present in a sample by measuring the mass-to-charge ratio and abundance of gas-phase ions. The main components of mass spectrometry includes ion Source, mass analyser and detector. Principles of mass spectrometry includes qualitative and quantitative analysis providing information about the mass of atoms and molecules, molecular structure determination of organic & inorganic, identification and characterization of materials, creating gas phase ions from the analyte atoms or molecules, separating the ions according to their mass-to-charge ratio and measuring the abundance of the ions.
