Uranium–Lead Systematics of Lunar Basaltic Meteorite Northwest Africa 2977
Narumi Moromoto, Yosuke Kawai, Kentaro Terada, Masaaki Miyahara, Naoto Takahata, Yuji Sano, Naoko Fujikawa, Mahesh Anand
Northwest Africa (NWA) 2977 is a lunar basaltic meteorite that was found in 2005 and has been classified as an olivine cumulate gabbro. This meteorite contains a shock melt vein (SMV) induced by an intense shock event. We report herein on an in-situ analysis of phosphates in the host gabbro and

An Investigation of the Non-selective Etching of Synthetic Polymers by Electrospray Droplet Impact/Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (EDI/SIMS)
Kenzo Hiraoka, Yuji Sakai, Hiroyuki Kubota, Satoshi Ninomiya, Stephanie Rankin-Turner
Among the various types of cluster secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS), electrospray droplet impact/secondary ion mass spectrometry (EDI/SIMS) is unique due to its high ionization efficiency and non-selective atomic/molecular-level surface etching ability. In this study, EDI/SIMS was applied to the non-selective etching of synthetic polymers of polystyrene (PS) and

Attempts to Detect Lipid Metabolites from a Single Cell Using Proton-Transfer-Reaction Mass Spectrometry Coupled with Micro-Scale Supercritical Fluid Extraction: A Preliminary Study
Toshinobu Hondo, Chihiro Ota, Kohta Nakatani, Yumi Miyake, Hiroshi Furutani, Takeshi Bamba, Michisato Toyoda
Proton-transfer-reaction (PTR) mass spectrometry (MS), a widely used method for detecting trace-levels of volatile organic compounds in gaseous samples, can also be used for the analysis of small non-volatile molecules by using supercritical fluid

UV-Absorbing Ligand Capped Gold Nanoparticles for the SALDI-MS Analysis of Small Molecules
Tomomi Kakuta, Nichayanan Manyuan, Hideya Kawasaki
We report that modifying the surface of gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) with 2-mercaptopyridine-3-carboxylic acid (MPyCA) enhances surface-assisted laser desorption/ionization (SALDI) performance in the analysis of small molecules.

Rapid Analysis of α-Tocopherol and Its Oxidation Products Using Supercritical Carbon Dioxide and Proton Transfer Reaction Ionization Mass Spectrometry
Chihiro Ota, Toshinobu Hondo, Yumi Miyake, Hiroshi Furutani, Michisato Toyoda
We have developed a rapid and sensitive analytical method for α-tocopherol and its oxidative products by combining online hyphenation of supercritical fluid extraction-supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) with proton transfer reaction

Effect of Phosphorylation on the Collision Cross Sections of Peptide Ions in Ion Mobility Spectrometry
Kosuke Ogata, Chih-Hsiang Chang, Yasushi Ishihama
The insertion of ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) between LC and MS can improve peptide identification in both proteomics and phosphoproteomics by providing structural information that is complementary to LC and MS, because IMS
