Liquid Chromatograpy – mass spectroscopy adalah dua  alat yang digabungkan menjadi satu, dimana berfungsi untuk memisahkan beberapa senyawa atau campuran senyawa berdasarkan kepolarannya (prinsip kerja kromatograpi), dimana setelah campuran senyawa tersebut terpisah, maka senyawa yang murni tersebut akan diidentifikasi berat moleculnya. Berbeda dengan Gas Chromatograpy – mass spectroscopy, LC-MS pada output datanya sangat jarang sekali terjadi pola fragmentasi, dikarenakan tidak ada proses fragmentasi. Sehingga yang didapatkan adalah berat molekul ditambah beberapa muatan ditambah lagi berat molekul pelarut (terkadang).

ESI adalah salah satu methode untuk mendapatkan berat molekul yang digunakan dalam LC-MS dimana jika pada metode biasanya (lupa-red) menggunakan fragmentasi (pemecahan molekul), maka pada metode ESI menggunakan spray (Penyemprotan). AKibatnya tidak akan ditemukan fragmen –fragmen dari molekul tersebut.

Adapun cara kerja liquid chromatograpi adalah sama dengan HPLC atau liquid chromatograpy lain pada umumnya. Sedangkan kerja Mass spectroscopy metode ESI  adalah sebagai berikut : 


Gambar 1. Proses pemisahan analite pada Liquid Chromatograpy sampai dengan sprayer (penyemprotan oleh spray needle tip)

1. Analyte bersama dengan eluent dari syringe pump atau LC masuk ke dalam cappilary.

Di dalam kappilary terdapat anoda (kutup negatif) pada taylor cone dan katoda (kutup negatif) didekat masukkan analyte dan eluent. Kutup ini berfungsi agar muatan yang berkumpul pada taylor cone adalah muatan positif sehingga nantinya saat terjadi penyemprotan dan terbentuk droplet (tetes – tetes) tidak bergabung – gabung menjadi droplet yang lebih besar lagi.

2.  Analylet dan solven(eluent) di semprotkan (spray) melalui taylor cone.

Akan terbentuk droplet – droplet dimana droplet – droplet itu akan mengalami tahap evaporasi solven untuk mengurangi solven yang menempel di analyte. Karena suatu saat , apabila terjadi evaporasi secara terus menerus maka solven yang meliputi analyte terkungkung dalam muatan positif yang berlebih, dalam bahasa inggris tahap seperti ini disebut the ‘rayleigh’  limit is reached, maka akan terjadi explosion yang disebut coulombic explosion dimana akan terjadi pemecahan droplet (tetesan) tadi. Ada beberapa kemungkinan yang terjadi pada droplet – droplet tersebut .

a. Yang pertama analyte akan tertambahi satu muatan positif

b. yang kedua analyte akan tertambahi beberapa muatan positif

c. yang ketiga analyte akan tertambahi satu muatan positif dan satu molekul solven

d. yang keempat analyte akan tertambahi satu muatan positif dan beberapa molekul solven

e. yang kelima analyte akant tertambahi beberapa muatan positif dan beberapa molekul solven.


Gambar 3.Proses Setelah analite dipisahkan oleh Liquid Cromatography

3. Droplet yang mengalami coulombic exsploison tersebut akan masuk ke dalam cone dimana di sisi kiri dan kanannya sudah mengalir gas Nitrogen (N2). Gas ini berfungsi agar analyte yang terjadi tadi stabil dalam bentuknya dan tidak terganggu oleh pengaruh gas oksigen. Droplet masuk ke dalam cappilary transfer lalu akan di analisis melalui mass spectrometer.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin

    But add it to the conspiracy and the scam theory of the cover and it’s
    timely and interesting.

  36. I do not even know how I stopped up right here, however I believed this publish was good.

    story of the car crash and we assume Paul is dead:
    He passed away in a vehicle crash late in 1966.

  47. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon everyday.
    It’s always exciting to read through content from other authors and practice a little something from their websites.

    You certainly put a new spin on a subject which has been discussed
    for many years. Excellent stuff, just great!

  50. Hey there are using WordPress for your site platform?

    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started
    and create my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own blog?
