High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry

High-resolution Mass Spectrometry Definition:

A technique that involves the use of a detector that can measure the m/z values to four decimal places.This technique allows for the determination of the molecular formula of an unknown compound.

High-Resolution Mass Spectrometry Explained:

A mass spectrometry produces charged particles from the chemical substance that are analyzed. Then electric and magnetic fields are used to measure the mass (weight) of charged particles.
