Mass spectrometry has a number of very diverse applications, especially in the field of organic compounds. Some examples are:

  • Analysis of natural products (phenols, essential oils, sterols, fatty acids).
  • Characterisation of reaction mixtures in organic synthesis.
  • Analysis of drugs and their metabolites.
  • Environmental analysis (analysis of surface and waste water, detection of pesticides, herbicides and insecticides, etc.).

The services offered include:

  • Determination, characterisation and identification of the molecular mass of small molecules.
  • Performance of low and high resolution mass spectra of pure products or mixtures, by direct introduction or prior separation by liquid chromatography (HPLC) or gas chromatography (GC).
  • Performance of MS/MS experiments by structural analysis and quantification in ESI and APCI (MRM).
  • Data analysis.
