Monitoring Synthetic Reactions Using an inert Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (iASAP)
Metal-based compounds have found utility in various fields such as clinical, energy, food safety and environmental to name a few. Creating the metal complex is the last step in a synthetic process, but it is critical to have the proper conditions for monitoring air-sensitive compounds to get the desire product and that side products are kept to a minimum to maximize yield.
In this application note, the inert atmospheric solid analysis probe (iASAP) and expression Compact Mass Spectrometer (CMS) was used to quickly sample and measure a modification of a published synthesis by Pfeiffer.
The research in this application note was presented at the 66th Annual Conference of the American Society of Mass Spectrometry (ASMS 2018)
