This book discusses fragmentation mechanisms of molecules under mass spectrometry conditions and the resulting peaks observed in ESI-MS/MS experiments. The underlying principles are used to understand everything from small molecules to biological poly-peptides collision induced dissociation. In a theoretical approach, gas phase reactivity of molecular ions is coupled with chemical dynamics simulations.
Covering reaction dynamics of unimolecular dissociation and bimolecular ionization. With practical examples from chemistry and biology.
