LCGC's coverage of ASMS 2009, day three, from Philadelphia.

June 3 — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — It’s hard to believe these three days have gone by so quickly, but here we are on the last day of this week's show coverage. It has been a great three days here in Philadelphia, and we would like to thank everyone who came by our booth and said hello. There is still time of course, and for those of you who still haven’t stopped by, please visit us at booth #39 before leaving on your journey home.

If you can't resolve peaks, you cannot get good accurate mass measurements or quantitate precisely - no matter how fast you scan. The Thermo Scientific Exactive benchtop LC–MS has high resolution, true mass accuracy, and fast scanning capabilities making it ideal for both screening and quantitation of compounds in complex samples.

June 3 — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — Ion mobility spectrometry has found commercial success as a homeland security tool in the field detection of explosives, drugs, and chemical weapons. Other common uses for the technique have been in the pharmaceutical industry for cleaning validation and in the analysis of biological material. The applications to be discussed in this Wednesday morning session include the combination of IMS with MS, the characterization of carbohydrate–protein binding, protein and peptide analysis, IMS-MS analyses with elevated electric field intensities, and neutral ion pair evaporation from ionic liquid nanodroplets.

June 3 — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — Fossil fuels are a limited resource, and the petroleum industry is always on the lookout for ways to extract more useful materials from crude oil. This session focuses on the use of mass spectrometry in the analysis of petroleum.

June 3 — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — The environment and possible contaminants will take center stage in a Wednesday afternoon session at the 57th annual ASMS Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

June 3 — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — Wednesday afternoon's session titled "MS of Polymers/Materials II: HPLC and Ion Mobility Separation" is part II of Wednesday morning session, "MS of Polymers/Materials I: Structures and Properties." The second half of this session will pick up where part one left off and address additional topics involving HPLC and other applications.

June 3 — Philadelphia, Pennsylvania — In case you can't make the conference finale on Thursday evening at the National Constitution Center, I'd recommend making time to stop by. I'd also recommend visiting several other excellent sites.
