Using ASAP-MS to detect the difference between over-the-counter and counterfeit paracetamol tablets

Gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC-MS) or high-resolution mass spectrometry (GCxGC-HRMS)  is widely used to identify differences between similar samples. Comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography combined with high-resolution mass spectrometry (GCxGC-HRMS) uses two columns with different phases to achieve greater separation of complex mixtures.  Each separation method has its strengths and weaknesses with respect to hardware setup and information content.

Nontargeted Screening for the Verification of Allergenic Ingredients and Perfume Authenticity by GC-ecTOF-MS

Plastic pollution is now an endemic problem in society, and has been identified as a potential planetary boundary threat.1 This project aims to create a standardised method for the sampling and characterisation of plastics using TD-GC-MS. Firstly, unique marker compounds for known plastics and their additives must be found.
Research question: Is it possible to use TD-GC-MS to differentiate by material?
