Scope of "Mass Spectrometry - A Textbook 2nd ed."

A highly successful textbook, acclaimed for its comprehensiveness, accuracy, and its many excellent illustrations and photographs now comes in its second edition - completely revised and substantially extended.
It provides in-depth explanations of concepts, methods, and techniques. Students and professionals alike are guided step-by-step from the basics to the successful application of mass spectrometry. Starting from the very principles of gas-phase ion chemistry, isotopic composition, and accurate mass, the author leads through the design of all types of mass analyzers and ionization methods to mass spectral interpretation and coupling techniques.
Overall, the book has been expanded by more than 200 pages. No chapter has remained untouched. Numerous passages have been rewritten to improve the clarity of explanations while keeping them short and concise. Care has been taken not only to explain how, but also to why things are done a certain way. Several schemes have been added to clarify interrelationships between different techniques.
