Abstract

In the development of the mass spectrometry of large, thermally labile organic compounds, increasing attention is being paid to laser-induced desorption from dilute solid solutions of compounds of interest within some host matrix [see, e.g., 1, 2]. This work has focused on direct production of ions during the desorption event, coupled with time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOF-MS), and the use of selected ultraviolet (UV) light-absorbing compounds for the matrices.
