Abstract: Particle impact mass spectrometry and in particular the use of MeV particles as in plasma desorption mass spectrometry (PDMS) applied to biomolecules is described. Experimental and theoretical studies of the mechanisms involved for large molecular ion ejection are treated in some detail. Applications of PDMS mass spectrometry to proteins are discussed.
