This course has been approved by the Royal Society of Chemistry for purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
This course is taught live in a virtual classroom, is totally interactive with small group sizes so plenty of opportunities to ask LIVE questions.
Every analyst using GC-MS should have a fundamental understanding of how a mass spectrum is generated and if a library match is correct or not.
This course takes this a step further to enhance mass spectral knowledge. From learning to quickly recognise from the spectrum if the analyte is aliphatic or aromatic in nature; to learning to interpret the number of carbon atoms, heteroatoms and degree of unsaturation; and understand isotopes, isomers, logical losses, cleavages and rearrangements to produce a mass spectral fingerprint of the compound. The course combines PowerPoint presentations to introduce the theory with a high proportion of exercises on spectral data to reinforce the topics learned.
If you wish to learn the fundamentals of mass spectral interpretation for the identification of unknowns or to enhance your understanding of fragmentation patterns produced from GC-MS analysis to aid in accurate identification when using library search programs, then this course is for you.
