Introduction to Mass Spectrometry Video

This video, part of the knowbeetutoring collection available from offers a basic but effective introduction to ion production of organic molecules in an electron ionization spectrometer. The basis for fragmentation is explained for the propane molecule using very clear graphics. It is an excellent first exposure to the technique, and supplies a very solid…

Introduction to Mass Spectrometry

Introduction This module provides an introduction to the main concepts related to mass spectroscopy. The materials are intended for use in an undergraduate instrumental analysis course and are broken down into categories such as instrument components, hyphenated techniques, and data interpretation.

TOF Tutorial

A basic tutorial on the principles of Time-of-flight mass spectrometer design, presenting the concepts of ionization, acceleration from an ion source, energy dispersion of the ions due to space dispersion in the source, and the use of an ion mirror to focus this dispersion. The two-field source, the ion mirror, and the MCP ion detector is… Mass Spectrometry

This video, distributed on YouTube by the Royal Society of Chemistry is on the basic principles of mass spectrometry, using a magnetic sector instrument to demonstrate how specific m/z ratios can be selected. The theory and operation of MS, including the chemistry of ionization and fragmentation is described at an introductory level. There's also an excellent…
