Paper Abstract

The principle of resonance-ionization mass spectrometry with lasers is the combination of two analytical tools, UV- spectroscopy in the gas phase and time-of-flight mass selection. The special features of this combination are: very high selectivity, high speed, multicomponent ability, and adaptability to many different problems. Examples for the latter are on-line trace analysis of emissions from combustion processes, such as from combustion engines as well as from municipal incinerators. But also monitoring of industrial procedures, e.g. food processing, are interesting applications of REMPI-MS. In this paper the principles will be shortly explained and results for the analysis of exhaust emissions from motorized vehicles presented.
