Current research is directed towards the application of mass spectrometry (MS) to obtain the molecular mass distribution of synthetic polymers. Research is focused on the development of the matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) method of mass spectrometry in concert with classical methods of single chain characterization like light scattering.
