Electron impact - Mass spectrometry - Centre for Chemical and Biochemical Analysis

Electron impact is the traditional and possibly the most common method of ionisation.

Electrospray - Mass spectrometry - Centre for Chemical and Biochemical Analysis

Electrospray can be used for the analysis of medium to high mass organic compounds, but is equally useful for the analysis of biological molecules such as peptides, proteins, saccharides and oligonucleotides.

Elemental analysis - Centre for Chemical and Biochemical Analysis

Information on the elemental anaylsis services provided by the School of Chemistry's Centre for Chemical and Biochemical Analysis.


his technique uses elliptically polarized monochromatic light to determine the thickness of surface. When polarized light interacts with the surface at an angle, it resolves into its parallel (s-polarized) and perpendicular (p-polarized) component. These components are reflected off the surface differently and hence the amplitude and phases of both components are changed.
