Abstract:

The fast bombardment FAB ionisation source for mass spectrometry MS is introduced, and the advantages over other ionisation techniques are discussed. Experimental factors are fully described. In initial work, FABMS is applied to the direct analysis of lubricant additives, thermally labile or involatile organic compounds such as macromolecules and ionic dyestuffs, and inorganic compounds. Applications published in the literature are reviewed. Attention is drawn to the high specificity of FABMS for surfactant species since these are often difficult to analyse by other methods.
