EI

The choice of ionization method depends on the properties of the sample.

  • GC-MS: Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry
  • EI-DIP: Direct Insertion Probe Sampling

GC-MS: Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry

GC-MS with EI ionization, chromatogram (top) and spectrum of the first component (bottom).

Sample mixture injected into the GC is separated into components. Spectra are acquired about once per second. Electron Impact ionization produces molecular ions and/or fragment ions.
