The 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.
