The final set of terms developed under this project, Definitions of Terms Relating to Mass Spectrometry (IUPAC Recommendations 2013), has been accepted for publication in Pure and Applied Chemistry.
Mass Spectrometry Terms and Definitions Project
Over the past decade, the goal of this site has been to provide information about the IUPAC sponsored project to update the Standard Terms and Definitions for Mass Spectrometry. The wiki was open for comment between 2004 and 2006 and is now being maintained as a reference tool and as an example of using a wiki for development of a glossary of terms.
There are currently 1,791 entries in Mass Spectrometry Terms as of Wednesday December 12, 2018.
