Chemical Analysis of Complex Samples with High Resolution Capillary Electrophoresis Mass Spectrometry

Cheng Qian (PhD candidate) supported by this Mitacs Globalink Program will go to Nanjing (P. R. China) and work in a cooperative project under the supervision from Prof. Dr. David Chen (University of British Columbia, Canada) and Prof. Xiaohua Huang (Nanjing Normal University, P. R. China) to install a novel electro-ionization interface for high resolution Capillary Electrophoresis Mass Spectrometry (CE-MS), and analyze complex samples to verify the performance of this state of the art hyphenated instrumentation. With high resolution Orbitrap Mass Spectrometer (Orbitrap MS), the full potential of the novel CE-MS interface could be exerted and new records for the performance of CE-MS could be set up, based on the success of this international project. Complex sample analysis will directly benefit from the combination of the great CE separation efficiency and accurate Orbitrap MS detection. More collaboration can be
developed by this project, between the Canadian academia of separation science and the Chinese counterparts.
