Mechanistic Organic Chemistry

Recently mass spectrometry has underscored impressive capabilities to capture and detect transient fleeting intermediates from solution-phase catalytic cycles of complex reactions. Along with other techniques (NMR, EPR, UV-vis, FT-IR, Fluorescence, CV, Conductivity study) we use different ambient ionization [electrospray, desorption electrospray and paper spray ionizations] mass spectrometric techniques to investigate the mechanism of different catalytic reactions.
