Problem 9.2

a) Does tandem MS require a collision chamber to be part of the instrumental setup?

b) Right or wrong? Decide and give a brief statement.

  1. Metastable ions desompose on the picosecond time scale:
  2. Metastable ions do only occur on magnetic sector instruments:
  3. Field-free regions are required for metastable ion dissociations:
  4. Only metabstable ions dissociation in field-free regions can be analyzed on the subsequent stage.
  5. Collision-induced dissociation is frequently employed for fragment ion generation from otherwise stable prescursor ions.
