MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry is one of the latest and most fascinating new developments in the analysis of organic compounds. Originally developed for the analysis of biomolecules, it has developed into one of the most powerful techniques for the characterization of synthetic polymers. This book describes the fundamentals of the MALDI process and the technical features of MALDI-TOF instrumentation. It reviews the application of MALDI-TOF for identification, chemical and molar mass analysis of synthetic polymers. With many examples, this monograph examines in detail experimental protocols for the determination of endgroups, the analysis of copolymers and additives, and the coupling of liquid chromatography and MALDI-TOF.


Feature:

For the first time, a comprehensive presentation of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry as a powerful analytical technique for synthetic polymers is presented in a book format
Summarizes the fundamentals and technical aspects of the method and describes experimental procedures in detail
Will enable the reader to plan and execute own experiments and includes applications that have not been published before

From the reviews:

First of all, I like the book. The outline is very good to start with introductury material and then to provide details about different polymer-MALDI studies. You have included many examples. So, in summary, I think the book is great and will be a significant contribution. (David M. Hercules, Centennial Professor and Chair, Department of Chemistry, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, Tn)

From "Journal of the American Chemical Society", Vol. 125/51, 2003:
"... All major applications of MALDI-TOF in polymer analysis, including determination of molar mass and analysis of functional groups and copolymers, are presented, and useful information about instrumentation, selection of matrices, and experimental conditions is provided. ... In general, the book is well written and provides comprehensive information toward practical and established MALDI-TOF MS of synthetic polymers. Other newly developed areas, such as the analysis of nanoparticles, are only mentioned in passing, however. Nonetheless, the book is recommended reading for practitioners in this field."

In general, the book is well written and provides comprehensive information toward practical and established MALDI-TOF MS of synthetic polymers. Other newly developed areas, such as the analysis of nanoparticles, are only mentioned in passing, however. Nonetheless, the book is recommended reading for practitioners in this field.

"The book provides a wealth of useful information from a large number of references and is highly recommended to polymer mass spectrometrists and polymer chemists … . The book is well written and useful both to polymer chemists who want to learn about mass spectrometry’s capabilities and to mass spectrometrists who seek a better understanding of the MALDI method and the advantages of MS with chromatographic combining separation." (Chrys Wesdemiotis, Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry, Vol. 381, 2005)

"This book offers a summary of the fundamentals and the technical aspects of the matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) of synthetic polymers as well as detailed experimental procedures. … the book is well written and provides comprehensive information toward practical and established MALDI-TOF MS of synthetic polymers. … is recommended reading for practitioners in this field."
