High resolution mass spectrometry for the characterisation of petroleum and combustion aerosol samples

Petrochemical products and their combustion aerosol are known as one of the most complex mixtures. The in depth chemical characterisation at the molecular level is known as Petroleomics and main topic of the project. Therefore high resolution mass spectrometer (Orbitrap and FT-ICR-MS) with various ionisation techniques (ESI, APCI, MALDI) and coupling techniques (evolved gas analytics, gas chromatography) are applied. Main aspects are the development of new sample treatment strategies and analytical approaches as well as the automatic comprehensive data analysis utilizing self-written processing algorithms.
