Molecular Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) has successfully provided molecular weights and structural information on various kinds of nonvolatile and labile bio-organic compounds [1–4]. Many studies on peptides have also attempted to interpret the fragmentation mechanism or amino acid sequence by analysis of the fragmentation patterns in SI or Fast Atom Bombardment (FAB) mass spectra [5–8].
