MassSpec-PECD website is up

We have created a special website to highlight the novel technique for the detection of chiral molecules called Mass Spectrometric PhotoElectron CircularDichroism (MS-PECD). MS-PECD provides direct Mass Spectrometric detection of chiral molecules and does not need any prior enantiomeric separation.

Chiral molecules or of utmost importance in the pharmaceutical industry, the flagrance and odeur industry and in agriculture. More than half of all drugs that are produced worldwide are chiral, and detection of the enantiomeric purity of drugs during research and production is warranted by regulatory agencies like the FDA.

The website provides detailed information on the science and technological implementation of MS-PECD.
