High resolution mass spectrometer facility
This facility is a hybrid quadrupole/atmospheric pressure ionisation orthogonal accelerated time-of-flight mass spectrometer. Mass spectrometry is an analytical technique that can provide both qualitative (structure) and quantitative (molecular mass or concentration) information on analyte molecules after their conversion to ions.

Mass spectrometry is an analytical technique that can provide both qualitative (structure) and quantitative (molecular mass or concentration) information on analyte molecules after their conversion to ions. The molecules of interest are first introduced into the ionisation source of the mass spectrometer, where they are first ionised to acquire positive or negative charges. The ions then travel through the mass analyser and arrive at different parts of the detector according to their mass/charge (m/z) ratio. After the ions make contact with the detector, useable signals are generated and recorded by a computer system. The computer displays the signals graphically as a mass spectrum showing the relative abundance of the signals according to their m/z ratio.
Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry is a desorption ionization method. Desorption ionization methods can be performed on solid or liquidÂ samples and allows for the sample to be nonvolatile or thermally unstable. This means that ionization of samples such as proteins, peptides, olgiopeptides, and some inorganic molecules can be performed.
- The sample should be pure and dry and submit in a vial along with the sample code, molecular formula or molecular weight.
- Mention the suitable solvent (preferably protonated solvent like MeOH, ACN or water.)
- External Users can come in-person or send your samples along with a letter from the Head / Guide on your College/Institute /Industry Original Letter Head for registration stating that the analysis is for research purpose to qualify for academic concession. The letter should be addressed to The Head, Dept. Of Chemistry, IIT, Bombay.
- The analytical data / spectra are provided only for research / development purposes. These can not be used as certificates in legal disputes.
- Service charges are payable at prevailing rates (Please add 12.36% service tax).
