2010 was the memorial year of carbon.
Novel Prize in Physics is for the study of carbon molecule sheet and in Chemistry is for the study of carbon coupling.
PYROCARB that coats the pyrotic-carbon membrane on bare graphite is an epoch-making plate for MALDI TOF/MS.
PYROCARB’s Advantages of chemical and physical property
- Superior resistance to chemical corrosion(acid-aq and alkali-aq)
- Superb thermal stability characteristic
- The purification of the membrane is highly purity.
- Very small thermal expansion
- Matrix solution (saturated) can be diluted to 1,000 times (lower noise , decreasing contamination of MS by matrix).
- Ionization with much lower laser energy can be attainable (better selectivity).
- Crystallization is homogeneous and no dispersion (sweetspot area is much bigger).
- Chemical reaction on the plate before or after measurement.
