A Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometer based on a permanent magnet with a magnetic induction of 0.16 T with low homogeneity provided a precision of 3.2 taken as the relative standard deviation of the hourly mean of three independent measurements over a 5 hour period and a precision of 1 1.7 for daily measurements over a 10 day period. For the permanent magnet system, resolution values for perdeuterated benzene m z 84 for a given mass range and a given number of data points were similar to those measured for both an electromagnet 0.2 to 1.0 T and a superconducting solenoid 3.0 T. Signal to noise ratios for perdeuterated benzene obtained with the three different magnets were also measured.
