Mass Spectrometry
Check out this exciting research submitted, as part of our Citation Promotion, by Molly Blevins from the Department of Chemistry, University of Texas at Austin! The work is titled “Localization of Cyclopropane Modifications in Bacterial Lipids via 213 nm Ultraviolet Photodissociation Mass Spectrometry”. Molly and the rest of the Brodbelt research group were able to employ 213 nm ultraviolet photodissociation mass spectrometry (UVPD-MS) for structural characterization of cyclopropane rings in bacterial phospholipids and mycolic acids.
