The need for quantitative and rapid detection of chemical compounds in complex media and at ultra low concentrations provides significant challenges to modern analytical chemistry for applications in the environmental science area.
Soft chemical ionisation mass spectrometric techniques can be used to address some of these challenges. The aim of this half-day meeting is to provide a forum for the discussion of recent applications and developments of soft chemical ionisation techniques for use in environmental science research.
The meeting is organised jointly between the Molecular Physics Group of the Institute of Physics and the Environmental Chemistry Group of the Royal Society of Chemistry
