The LCGC Blog: Considering Mobile Phase Composition for LC–MS
Coupling high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to mass spectrometry (MS) can mean the challenge of segregating the ionized, typically nonvolatile analytes from a large amount of solvent, and the mobile phase is an important component in the process. LCGC Blog editor Kevin Schug discusses factors to consider when choosing a mobile phase for LC–MS. More...
