Research :            


Though ESI is one of the softest ionization techniques available, and is capable to transfer intact macromolecules (> 1MDa) in the gas phase, electrochemical processes at the electrodes are inherent to the technique and can often not be controlled accurately.  Unwanted electrochemical processes include metal oxidation or reduction and sharp pH gradients, which can distort the native solution-phase structures.  My research attempts to increase control of these reactions with 3-electrode cell designs, thus in fact selectively 'manufacturing' complexes of interest, especially metal-containing complexes. The gas-phase structures of the generated complexes can then be probed by both ion mobility mass spectrometry and infrared spectroscopy. Ion mobility yields information on the overall structure of gas-phase complexes by virtue of the collision cross section, whereas infrared spectroscopy probes the hydrogen bonding and chemical structure of these complexes.
