What is mass spectroscopy in chromatography?
Mass spec is use to further confirm your sample analyzed. Mass
spectroscopy breaks down the sample into its components. It does
this by bombarding the molecule with some type of particle (either
alpha or beta... or i may be way off). This will break down the
sample into certain weights. The mass spec will tells you these
molecular wieghts. On your software that you have you will see the
molecular wieghts on a graph. You then can compare it to the
library you have to see if your sample is actually the sample you
say it is.
