Gas-chromatography mass spectrometry (GC-MS) has contributed to the advance of tobacco chemistry. Although the structure of unknown compounds cannot be determined by GC-MS alone, it is to great use to the identification of the tobacco constituents. Recently, mass spectra of tobacco isoprenoids have been reviewed by Enzell et al. (1984).
