Accurate Mass Measurement

Accurate mass measurements aid the determination of an elemental formula for an unknown or novel compound.


Dedicated electrospray or electron ionisation high resolution mass spectrometers are used for all accurate mass measurements. Data will be returned highlighting the measured mass of the required ion(s) together with a list of possible candidate formulae. This information is used to aid compound identification and is essential for thesis submission and publication in the majority of peer-reviewed appropriate science journals.
