The objective of development of a tandem mass spectrum database is to create a viable analytical tool for the identification of compounds in biological and other complex mixtures using LC-MS/MS data. Provide the facility of an MS-based natural product reference library to researchers from academic institutes, R&D laboratories, and industries.
It is a library of the MS/MS spectrum of naturally occurring compounds (Natural products). The main purpose of the library is to identify compounds by comparing the fragmentation "fingerprints" (mass spectra) of their ions produced by atmospheric pressure ionization (API).
Tandem mass spectrometry is a powerful analytical technique used to generate a fragment ion spectrum of compounds. It offers a unique molecular signature of organic compounds for their identification in complex mixtures.
