  • The LC-MS interest group currently has 200 members.
  • The aim of the research group is to provide a forum for information on new developments and discussions in the field of liquid chromatography coupled to mass-spectrometry (LC-MS).

    Topics include e.g.

    • Sample Preparation…
    • Ultra-high-pressure liquid chromatography systems (UPLC / HPLC, …)
    • stationary phases (chromatography material) …
    • Solvent systems …
    • Sources for the desorption and ionization of the analytes…
    • Mass Analyzers (orbitrap, triple quadrupole, triple tof, etc.)…Tandem mass spectrometry (MS / MS) …
    • Software…
    • Method development and validation…
    • Troubleshooting…

    for LC-MS. Topics for LC-MS fields of application include routine analysis in industry, food technology, environmental analysis and medicine (e.g., identification & quantification of analytes, quality control), as well as the use of LC-MS in research (e.g., metabolomics, proteomics). Small organic molecules are also in focus as well as proteins.
