Abstract

Ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) permits the fast detection of organic compounds by fieldable and hand-held devices. Ion mobility spectrometers are suitable as a field monitor method owing to:
  • the technical parameters of devices (power supply, size, weight);

  • the measuring conditions (ambient pressure, air as drift gas); and

  • the fast information content of measurements (high sensitivity, recording of ion mobility spectra).
