Welcome to the Fourier Transform Ion Cyclotron Resonance (FT-ICR) Mass Spectrometry group at the University of Delaware. Our research focus is in the field of gas phase ion chemistry, however, our research projects are multidisciplinary by design covering the fields of physical, analytical, biological, inorganic, computational and marine chemistry. Our primary research tool is the FT-ICR mass spectrometer which we use to probe gas phase chemical reactions. These powerful instruments allow us to extract structural, kinetic, and thermodynamic information.
