By Samira Hosseini

This publication provides the basics and purposes of Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (MALDI-ToF-MS) method. It highlights the fundamental rules, the heritage of invention in addition to the mechanism of ionization and mass choice utilizing this system. It describes the basic rules and techniques for MALDI spectra interpretation and backbone of actual chemical buildings from experimental facts. This booklet publications the reader in the course of the interpretation of MALDI information the place advanced macromolecular spectra are simplified that allows you to current the most important ideas in the back of information interpretation. additionally, each one bankruptcy describes how MALDI-ToF-MS research offers important figuring out of the copolymer platforms which were designed for specialised biomedical applications.

Therefore, it is highly recommended to take the advantage of MALDI analysis in association with other useful techniques such as nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), X-ray photoelectron spectrometry (XPS), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and RAMAN spectroscopy.

X and Y in the general structure of the copolymer (shown in Fig. 4) can be replaced by “H” and/or “CH3” depending on the individual chains. 2, which is in agreement with pre-determined concentrations of monomers (MMA/MAA) in the polymerization reaction. Although end-groups data obtained from MALDI analysis are essential, in some rare cases, it can result in the wrong understanding of the polymer chain. For example, in MALDI spectrum of P(MMA-co-MAA) (5:5), there is a peak with the m/z value of 1069.

9 presents. This special peak reveals different possible formations for a same polymer chain. Each of the proposed structures, in turn, can fit perfectly in the peak value (1069). In all of the suggested structures shown in Fig. 9, number of the monomers is constant (MMA = 6 and MAA = 5). Nevertheless, each structure suggests different terminal groups for its chain. 2 End-group identification from MALDI spectra analyzed for different composition of P(MMA-co-MAA) Peak position (m/z) MMA units (n) MAA units (m) Exp.
