Mass Spectrometry is an analytical technique that ionizes chemical species and separates the ions based on their mass to charge ratio. In order to measure the characteristics of individual molecules, a mass spectrometer converts them to ions so that they can be moved about and manipulated by external electric and magnetic fields. Mass spectrometry has been enhanced with advanced features related the fields in science and medical analysis. Of the various sorts of explanatory methods utilized as a part of drug discovery and advancement, mass spectrometry (MS) has turned out to be a standout amongst the most capable apparatuses for the investigations of an extensive variety of concoction and natural substances. A mass spectrum is a plot of the ion signal as a function of the mass-to-charge ratio. These spectra are used to determine the elemental or isotopic signature of a sample, the masses of particles and of molecules, and to elucidate the chemical structures of molecules, such as peptides and other chemical compounds

High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) is a form of column chromatography that pumps a sample mixture or analyte in a solvent (known as the mobile phase) at high pressure through a column with Chromatographic packing material (stationary phase). The sample is carried by a moving carrier gas stream of helium or nitrogen. HPLC is used in a variety of industrial and scientific applications, such as Pharmaceutical, environmental, forensics, and chemicals.

            Main components in an HPLC system include the solvent reservoir, or multiple reservoirs, a high-pressure pump, a column, injector system and the detector.

Gas chromatography (GC) uses a gaseous mobile phase such as helium or hydrogen to push molecules through a column that serves as the stationary phase. The most common type of Mass Spectrometer (MS) associated with a Gas chromatography (GC) is the quadrupole Mass Spectrometer. GC is predominantly limited to volatile, heat-stable compounds lacking polar functional groups; however, chemical modification with derivatizing agents allows for functional groups to be masked, producing less polar, GC-compatible compounds. Gas Chromotography is the method most often used for comprehensive drug screening in the clinical laboratory using a combination of GC and Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS).

Tandem mass spectrometry, also known as MS/MS or MS2, involves multiple steps of Mass Spectrometry selection, with some form of fragmentation occurring in between the stages. In a Tandem mass spectrometer, ions are formed in the ion source and separated by mass-to-charge ratio in the first stage of Mass spectrometry. A common tandem Mass Spectrometry (MS/MS) analyzer will have 3 quadrupoles, denoted Q1, q2, and Q3. Q1 and Q3 are true Mass Analyzers using combinations of voltages and frequencies as described. There are various methods for fragmenting molecules for Tandem MS, including collision-induced dissociation (CID), electron capture dissociation (ECD), infrared multiphoton dissociation (IRMPD) and Blackbody Infrared Radiative Dissociation (BIRD)

Chromatography is a physical method of separation that distributes components to separate between two phases, one stationary (stationary phase), the other (the mobile phase) moving in a definite direction. The various constituents of the mixture travel at different speeds, causing them to separate. The separation is based on differential partitioning between the mobile and stationary phases

            Chromatography may be preparative or Analytical. The purpose of Preparative chromatography is to separate the components of a mixture for later use, and is thus a form of purification. Analytical chromatography is done normally with smaller amounts of material and is for establishing the presence or measuring the relative proportions of analytes in a mixture.

Mass Spectrometry in the clinical laboratory has focused on drugs of abuse confirmations, new-born screening, and steroid analysis. Clinical applications of Mass Spectrometry continue to expand, and Mass Spectrometry is now being used in almost all areas of laboratory medicine. Mass Spectrometry (MS) is an analytical technique for determining the structures of unknown molecules and “fingerprint” identifications of known molecules that are present in gases, liquids, and solids. Mass Spectrometry is unsurpassed in its combination of sensitivity, specificity, and speed. Fully computerized and reliable instruments have made possible the use of this powerful tool in Clinical medicine.

Mass Spectrometry are extensively used in drug discovery and development, including drug metabolism research. Mass Spectrometry plays in the discovery and development of new therapeutics by both the Pharmaceutical and the Biotechnology Industries. Mass Spectrometry is an essential tool in determining the molecular mass information of interest by ionizing chemical compounds to generate charged molecules or molecule fragments. The most common forms of ionization in small molecule research are electron ionization (EI), atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI), and electrospray ionization (ESI). Mass spectrometry is widely used for analysis of impurities and degradation products due to its high sensitivity and selectivity.

Mass spectrometry (MS) is the most comprehensive and versatile tool in large-scale proteomics. Mass spectrometry has arguably become the core technology in proteomics. Protein mass spectrometry refers to the application of Mass spectrometry to the study of proteins. Mass Spectrometry is an important method for the accurate mass determination and characterization of Proteins, and a variety of methods and instrumentations have been developed for its many uses. Mass Spectrometry consist of three basic components: an ion source, a mass analyser, and an ion detector.

Mass spectrometry is used commonly in forensic laboratories for the confirmation of drugs and identification of ignitable liquids. Mass spectroscopy, also called mass spectrometry, is a scientific method that analyzes a sample of material to determine its molecular makeup. By ionizing a sample, a scientist can cause it to separate into its individual ions. Mass spectrometry has become a valuable tool in forensic science, where it can provide clues from the barest traces left by a suspect. Mass spectrometry is also useful in analyzing trace evidence.

Mass Spectrometry has played an important role in aiding our understanding of environmental pollution and processes. Due to the tremendous amount of environmental research in the literature, this review must by necessity be selective. Research in Environmental mass spectrometry focuses on two broad areas: development of new methods for a wide range of pollutants; and using existing methods to understand the fate of pollutants in nature. This method may be useful in situations that require a continuous readout of concentration. Like Mass Spectrometrists everywhere, environmental scientists have explored the many facets of Liquid chromatographic mass spectrometry

Biochemical applications of Mass Spectrometry (MS) are important in the Pharmaceutical industry. They comprise compositional analyses of biomolecules, especially proteins, and methods that measure molecular functions such as ligand binding. Mass Spectrometry (MS) has emerged as a front-runner technique in pharmaceutical analysis, covering both qualitative and quantitative aspects. In fact, the area of use of MS is increasing at such an unprecedented rate that new applications are getting developed almost on daily basis.

There are many types of Ionization methods are used in Mass Spectrometry methods. The classic methods that most chemists are familiar with are Electron Impact (EI) and Fast Atom Bombardment (FAB). These techniques are not used much with modern Mass Spectrometry except EI for environmental work using GC-MS. Mass spectrometers measure the mass-to-charge (m/z) ratios of gas phase ions.  Creating gas phase ions is the role of the Ionization Method.

Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are compounds consisting of metal ions or clusters coordinated to organic ligands to form one, two or three-dimensional structures. MOFs are composed of two major components: a metal ion or cluster of metal ions and an organic molecule called a linker. For this reason, the materials are often referred to as hybrid organic–inorganic materials. Although thousands of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have been fabricated and widely applied in gas storage/separations, adsorption, catalysis, and so on, few kinds of MOFs have been used as adsorption materials while simultaneously serving as matrixes to analyze small molecules for laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry.
