about

Volume 5: Elemental and Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry focuses on (1) the plethora of mostly atomic ionization techniques that have been coupled to MS for elemental analysis, the measurement of isotope ratios, and even the determination of inorganic compounds and (2) the precise measurement of isotope ratios of organic elements as small gas molecules by isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS).



  • Reviews the wide range of ionization and isotope methods used in inorganic mass spectrometry today
  • Features tutorials describing the key principles and instrumentation relevant to each method
  • Evaluates practical applications for the analysis of environmental, biological, biomedical, nutritional, geological, nuclear, microelectronic and extra-terrestrial materials
  • Includes more than 3400 references, 100 tables and 500 figures of which more than 200 are in color
Diane Beauchemin is Professor of Chemistry at Queen's University, Kingsland, Ontario, Canada. Her research efforts are focused on inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICPMS), aiming to understand the limitations of this technique to identify ways of alleviating them and to expand the range of application of ICPMS (including to...

Editorial Reviews

"The Encyclopedia of Mass Spectrometry, Volume 5: Elemental and isotope ratio mass spectrometry covers the subject almost entirely and serves as a reference work with links to specialist literature if more details are required. Therefore, this book can be recommended to all beginners, students, and experts working in this broad field."--Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry
