Small Molecules Unmasked In Mass Spectrometry
Mass spectrometry is useful for identifying many molecules, but one popular technique for probing biomolecules struggles to analyze small molecules. Now researchers have discovered that simply deuterating the matrix used in matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry allows them to identify previously hidden small molecules, including neurotransmitters and pharmaceuticals (Anal.
