The research, which appears in todays (Friday, Oct. 15) issue of the journal Science, was conducted by first author Zoltán Takáts with Justin M. Wiseman, Bogdan Gologan and Cooks, all of Purdue.
Gologan said that the teams innovation was inspired in part by the desire to use one of chemistrys most powerful tools in less limiting environments than the laboratory.
“Testing an unknown sample using standard mass spec can take up to half a day,” said Gologan, a graduate student in Cooks laboratory. “You have to dissolve the sample, then dilute the solution, then add additional compounds before you can stick it in the spectrometer. Its a generally effective process, but its not so attractive in situations where time is of the essence.”
