Mass Spectrometry of Polymers

Recent advances in soft ionization techniques for mass spectrometry of polymeric materials make it possible to determine the mass of intact molecular ions exceeding 1 × 106 Da. Developments in high-resolution mass spectrometers have additionally led to impressive advances in our ability to characterize polymers. The entire molecular mass distribution of a polymer sample can be accurately measured. From the molecular mass, the molecular formulae and information regarding polymer composition and end-groups can be deduced.
