a) The negative-ion FAB spectrum of triethanolamine matrix is shown below. Assign general formulas to those peaks with a mass label.
b) Provided sufficient intensity, what purpose can matrix peaks serve?
c) The above FAB spectrum shows a high noise level which is particularly obvious in the region where the intensity has been 10-fold expanded. Where does the noise come from?
