In this paper are presented the possibilities of using matrix assisted laser desorption ionization time of flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry in textile industry. MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry it is a convenient, versatile method for characterization and identification of dyes and pigments, and also for characterization of fibers and contaminants of the fabrics.
