Editorial Reviews

`'...The focus of the book is a nice blend of a little history plus some projections as to future directions, but it is devoted primarily to examples of MS use today...the book is well written and attractive; data figures are excellent and mass spectra are usually superimposed with thepertinent chemical structure. Advanced students and cross-disciplinary reserachers at the biology-chemistry interface should find this book rewarding.''Timoth C. Morton,Plant Science Bulletin, vol.43, no.4, Winter 1997.
