Two-dimensional Fourier-transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (2D-FT-ICR MS) is able to provide both molecular mass and fragmentation information in complex samples in a single run and without chromatographic separation – but does it have as much potential as 2D NMR did in the 1980s?

In recent years, fantastic technological advances in mass spectrometry (MS) have driven the emergence of fields such as proteomics and metabolomics. MS also plays a pivotal role in pharmacology, environment and forensic sciences by providing two kinds of information: molecular mass and structure (through fragmentation). Whereas masses of molecules can be obtained in a single spectrum, structures are painfully obtained one by one, after selection (either manually or automatically) of each component of interest in the mixture.
