Synopsis of the 2004 ASMS Fall Workshop on Polymer Mass Spectrometry
William E. Wallace
This year s fall workshop of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry was on the topic of synthetic polymer mass spectrometry and was chaired by Robert P. Lattimer (Noveon, Inc.) and Chrys Wesdemiotis (University of Akron, Department of Chemistry). The workshop was co-sponsored by the Polymers Division of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and follows polymer mass spectrometry workshops held at NIST in 2002 and 2003. The focus of the 2004 workshop was tutorial. Review-and-outlook talks were given in the four major areas of polymer mass spectrometry (MS): Chromatographic Separations and MS, MS of Complex Compositions, Analysis of Polymer Surfaces, and Analysis of Polymer Single-Chain Structure. Each of the four sessions featured two invited speakers followed by a wide-ranging panel discussion on the current and future directions of that area of polymer mass spectrometry. The presentations of the eight invited speakers will be summarized here.
