electrospray mass spectroscopy
Method of mass spectroscopy in which the sample is introduced as a fine spray from a highly charged needle so that each droplet has a strong charge. Solvent rapidly evaporates from the droplets leaving the free macromolecule. Beginning to be widely used because of its capacity to identify a wide range of compounds.
