This handbook presents the ion trap mass spectra of the most common terpenes (hydrocarbons found in oils, resins, and balsams) found in nature, including relative retention/elution times, an extensive synonymy of common and IUPAC names, CAS registry numbers, molecular formulas, and structures.
- Includes 502 spectra of essential oils from predominantly plant sources
- Presents an overview of the ion trap system
Researchers in chemical ecology, systematic and economic botany, range science and forestry, and flavor and fragrance chemists
