INTREPRETATION OF CID MASS SPECTRA
COURSE NO LONGER AVAILABLE
This relatively advanced course covers concepts for interpreting the collision-induced dissociation (CID) mass spectra of small molecules such as drugs, drug metabolites, impurities, degradants, environmental contaminants, etc.
The CID Mass Spectra On-line Training Course is designed as a practical, comprehensive introduction, which should enable the interested student to apply the basic rules of mass spectral interpretation for determining the structure of unknown compounds.
The prospective student should have a good understanding of organic chemistry, reaction mechanisms, and the guidelines of physical organic chemistry. It is desirable for the student to be familiar with the basics of physical organic chemistry mechanisms, atmospheric pressure ionization principles, tandem mass spectrometry and an understanding of EI mass spectral interpretation.
