This book covers the theory, instrumentation, and principles of mass spectrometry and atmospheric pressure ionisation. It also discusses new strategies for novel drug detection and development and identifies recent applications of mass spectrometry in chemical libraries, combinatorial chemistry, and pharmacology. It will be of interest to spectrometrists; pharmacologists; analytical; medicinal, and organic chemists and biochemists; biotechnologists; pharmaceutical scientists and toxicologists as well as advanced undergraduate and graduate students.


Introduction: the demand for drug discovery today; the impact of atmospheric pressure ionisation.
