Combination of Planar Chromatography with Mass Spectrometry MS

For the in situ identification of compounds separated on a TLC plate, molecules must be desorbed from the layer and then introduced into the ion source of the mass spectrometer. Such desorption can be accomplished by laser ablation or particle beam sputtering techniques. Ionization methods include conventional chemical ionization (CI), fast atom bombardment (FAB), liquid secondary-ion mass spectrometry (liquid-SIMS), and matrix-assisted laser desorp-tion/ionization (MALDI). Mass analysers are either sector field, quadrupole or time of flight (TOF) instruments. The principal limitation of the interesting TLC-MS hyphenation is that there is no MS instrument available that takes 10 cmx 10 cm or larger plates.
