On-line mass spectrometry: membrane inlet sampling

Beckmann, Katrin; Messinger, J; Badger, Murray; Wydrzynski, Thomas; Hillier, Warwick


Significant insights into plant photosynthesis and respiration have been achieved using membrane inlet mass spectrometry (MIMS) for the analysis of stable isotope distribution of gases. The MIMS approach is based on using a gas permeable membrane to enable the entry of gas molecules into the mass spectrometer source. This is a simple yet durable approach for the analysis of volatile gases, particularly atmospheric gases. The MIMS technique strongly lends itself to the study of reaction flux...[Show more]
