This Tuesday session will be chaired by Professor Ralf Zimmermann of the University of Röstock, Germany.

Room B21 (Hall B2)10:00

This Tuesday session will be chaired by Professor Ralf Zimmermann of the University of Röstock, Germany.

The session will begin with a presentation by Dr Thorsten Streibel of the University of Röstock, Germany who will discuss laser-based single and multi-photon ionization mass spectrometry for the characterization of combustion and pyrolysis processes.

Professor Luke Hanley from the University of Illinois, Chicago, Illinois, USA will follow with a presentation on laser desorption VUV postionization mass spectrometric imaging from vacuum to atmospheric pressure.

Next is Fei Qi from the National Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory, University of Science and Technology of China who will discuss synchrotron-based VUV photoionization mass spectrometry and its applications.

A brief break will take place before the session resumes. Here Ulrich Boesl from Technische Universität München, Munich, Germany will present “Resonance Enhanced Multiphoton Ionization of Molecular Systems: Principle, Application and Outlook” and Totaro Imasaka from Kyushu University, Japan will present “Gas Chromatography/Multiphoton Ionization/Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry for Analysis of Persistent Organic Pollutants at Femtogram Levels”.

After a half-hour lunch break from 13:30 to 14:00, the session will resume for the afternoon. Presentations include “Photochemically Induced Ionization Mechanisms: Protonation at Atmospheric Pressure” by Thorsten Benter from the University of Wuppertal, Germany and “Nanostructure-Based Mass Spectrometry for Activity Imaging in Tissues and Single Cells” by Professor Gary Siuzdak, The Scripps Research Institute, Center for Mass Spectrometry, San Diego, USA.

After another short break from 15:30 to 16:00, Professor Murray Johnston from the University of Delaware, Newark, USA will end the day’s session with “Rapid Sampling and Analysis of Organic Molecular Species with the Photoionization Aerosol Mass Spectrometer.”
