Mass spectrometry is the most powerful technique for the detection and identification of organic compounds. It can provide molecular weight information as well as a wealth of structural details that give a unique fingerprint for each analyte. Due to these characteristics, mass spectrometry-based analytical methods are showing an increasing interest in the scientific community, especially in food safety, environmental and forensic investigation areas where the simultaneous detection of targeted and non-targeted compounds represents a key factor. In addition, safety risks can be identified at the early stage through on-line and real-time analytical methodologies. In this context, several efforts have been made to achieve analytical instrumentation able to perform real-time analysis in the native environment of samples as well as to generate highly informative spectra. This review article provides a survey of some instrumental innovations and their applications with particular attention to spray-based MS methods and food analysis issues. The survey will attempt to cover the state-of-the-art from 2012 up to 2017.

Abstract

Mass spectrometry is the most powerful technique for the detection and identification of organic compounds. It can provide molecular weight information as well as a wealth of structural details that give a unique fingerprint for each analyte. Due to these characteristics, mass spectrometry-based analytical methods are showing an increasing interest in the scientific community, especially in food safety, environmental and forensic investigation areas where the simultaneous detection of targeted and non-targeted compounds represents a key factor. In addition, safety risks can be identified at the early stage through on-line and real-time analytical methodologies. In this context, several efforts have been made to achieve analytical instrumentation able to perform real-time analysis in the native environment of samples as well as to generate highly informative spectra. This review article provides a survey of some instrumental innovations and their applications with particular attention to spray-based MS methods and food analysis issues. The survey will attempt to cover the state-of-the-art from 2012 up to 2017.
