Source: ENG

Asia is a delicious and unique melting pot of flavors with the diverse cuisines reflecting the various cultural and ethnic groups that call it home. Award-winning writer John Krich has lived and traveled across Asia for the last decade as the food correspondent for the Asian Wall Street Journal. The 50 amazing food stories he shares in this book are organized around eight general themes and cover the following countries: China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, India, Macau, Taiwan, The Philippines, Japan, Korea, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam. Drawing on his culinary adventures and knowledge, Krich discusses food, ingredients and eateries everything from strange and wacky dishes to comfort food and fine imperial dining. Foodies will appreciate his insights and even gourmands will enjoy a chuckle as they digest what is being served."inherent electrochemistry, and concludes with a chapter offering a comparative inventory of source hardware Part B, Fundamentals of MALDI, confronts ionization mechanisms, instrument development, and matrix selection, and includes a final chapter that explores the special application of MALDI to obtain two-dimensional images of spatial distributions of compounds on surfaces Part C, ES and MALDI Coupling to Mass Spectrometry Instrumentation, examines the coupling of these ionization techniques to various mass analyzers, including quadrupole ion trap, time-of-flight, Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance, and ion mobility mass spectrometers Part D, Practical Aspects of ES and MALDI, investigates analytical issues including quantification, charge-state distributions, noncovalent interactions in solution that are preserved as gas-phase ions, and various means of ion excitation in preparation for tandem mass spectrometry, and offers a guide to the interpretation of even-electron mass spectra Part E, Biological Applications of ES and MALDI, examines the role of mass spectrometry in such areas as peptide and protein characterization, carbohydrate analysis, lipid analysis, and drug discovery Written by a team of leading experts, the book not only provides a critical review of the literature, but also presents key concepts in tutorial fashion to help readers take full advantage of the latest technological breakthroughs and applications.As a result, Electrospray and MALDI Mass Spectrometry will help researchers fully leverage the power of electrospray and MALDI mass spectrometry. The judicious compartmentalization of chapters, and the pedagogic presentation style throughout, render the book highly suitable for use as a text for graduate-level courses in advanced mass spectrometry.
