About The Journal

Journal of Advanced Mass Spectroscopy (JAMS) off Sciforce Publications is broad field of Analytical Chemistry and its related fields such as mass spectroscopy, structural analysis of organic molecules and inorganic molecules. JAMS publish original research articles, book chapters, reviews, short communications, rapid communications, and abstracts. Mass spectrometry (MS) is an analytical technique that measures the mass to charge ratio of ions. The results are typically presented as a mass spectrum, a plot of intensity as a function of the mass to charge ratio. Mass spectrometry is used in many different fields and is applied to pure samples as well as complex mixtures. These spectra are used to determine the elemental or isotopic signature of a sample, the masses of particles and of molecules, and to elucidate the chemical identity or structure of molecules and other chemical compounds. In a typical MS procedure, a sample, which may be solid material, liquid phase, or gaseous phase, is ionized, for example by bombarding it with electrons. This may cause some of the sample's molecules to break into charged fragments or simply become charged without fragmenting. These ions are then separated according to their mass to charge ratio, for example by accelerating them and subjecting them to an electric or magnetic field: ions of the same mass to charge ratio will undergo the same amount of deflection. The ions are detected by a mechanism capable of detecting charged particles, such as an electron multiplier. Results are displayed as spectra of the signal intensity of detected ions as a function of the mass to charge ratio. The atoms or molecules in the sample can be identified by correlating known masses to the identified masses or through a characteristic fragmentation pattern.
