Title: Reactive MALDI Mass Spectrometry: Application to High Mass Alkanes and Polyethylene
Published: August 21, 2007
Abstract: A molecular solid of fullerene (C60) intercalated with cobalt cyclopentadienyl dicarbonyl (CoCp(CO)2) was shown to be an effective matrix for matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI) of large alkanes (demonstrated up to C94H190) and polyethylenes that otherwise cannot be produced as intact ions in the gas phase.
