Welcome to the Mass Spectrometry Terms and Definitions Project Page

This goal of this site was 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 1,793 entries in Mass Spectrometry Terms as of Tuesday December 18, 2018.

Public discussion is now closed and the mass spectrometry terms document is undergoing peer review as a submission to Pure and Applied Chemistry.
