LIFDI is one of the softest ionization techniques for Mass Spectrometry.

  • performed within minutes
  • sensitive and easy to use
  • even for air/moisture sensitive samples
  • meaningful spectra from difficult samples inaccessible to analysis by established techniques.

LIFDI forms intact molecular ions of e.g.

  • organometallic complexes including
    • highly reactive samples
    • oily, not crystalizable compunds
    • unpurified mixtures
  • hydrocarbons, crude oils etc.
  • sterically hindered samples

LIFDI has genuine relevance to organometallic chemistry
LIFDI-MS is the method of choice when all other methods fail, e.g. ESI-MS.

LIFDI is available for many new mass spectrometers as well as an aftermarket upgrade to existing instruments.
