An updated and expanded version of the first edition, which was published in 1993, Ion Mobility Spectrometry, Second Edition provides greater insight into this important analytical technique. The new edition includes information on the advances in the research and application of IMS, including its use as a measurement technology for explosive device detection at airports, chemical weapons detection, air quality monitoring, and drug detection. It contains new chapters on biological ion mobility spectrometry, and field asymmetric ion mobility spectrometry includes a CD-ROM containing a library of spectral data and electronic schematics to illustrate the concepts in the text.
