Real time differentiation of ethylbenzene and the xylenes using SIFT-MS.

Summary of "Real time differentiation of ethylbenzene and the xylenes using SIFT-MS."

Monitoring of isomeric analytes using mass spectrometry usually requires a time-consuming chromatographic separation of the analytes before analysis. Selected ion flow tube-mass spectrometry (SIFT-MS) can provide rapid direct analysis of ethylbenzene and xylene by utilizing the different reaction chemistry of the isomers. O yields the same product ions from each isomer but in different ratios. OH yields different product ions.
