Direct Enantiomer-Selective Mass Spectrometry of Chiral Mixtures by Mass-Selected Photoelectron Circular Dichroism

Simultaneous, enantiomer-specific identification of chiral molecules in multicomponent mixtures is extremely challenging. With mass-selected photoelectron circular dichroism (MS-PECD) using an electron–ion coincidence imaging spectrometer, a compound can be identified as chiral without the need for any prior enantiomeric separation or enantiomer-selective complexation.
