Controversial opinion? I believe the metabolomics field has not yet recognized the value of neutral loss mass spectral data (NLintensity vs Dm/z), as represented in the new METLIN-Neutral Loss database. Neutral loss spectra’s role in identifying unknown metabolites is vastly underappreciated.
Heroes? Think of a world without quadrupole mass spectrometry. Without the contribution of Nobel Prize winner Wolfgang Paul (a personal hero), quadrupole mass spectrometry technology probably wouldn’t have ever existed.
