Summary on Grant Application Form
Mass spectrometry (MS) is a crucial part of the modern armoury for the identification and structural characterisation of molecules. The access to a mode mass spectrometer is vital to the productivity of a chemist working in any branch of synthetic chemistry. This application is for funding to purchase an urgs required high-resolution mass spectrometer for the School of Chemistry at Cardiff University. The synthetic work that would be supported by the new mas spectrometry service, and which is described in detail in Part 2 of this proposal, spans the spectrum from bio-organic and organic synthetic methodology, tl main group and coordination chemistry, to catalysis and materials synthesis. This work is of outstanding quality as recognised by the 27 current EPSRC g(3.5 M) that help to fund it.
