Try MS Software That Leaves Your Molecules in Pieces

ACD/MS Fragmenter predicts mass fragmentation quickly and easily. A 30-day free trial is available to download from the ACD/Labs website.

Toronto, Canada (July 11, 2008)—Developer of chemistry software for the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, Advanced Chemistry Development, Inc., (ACD/Labs) is now offering a 30-day free trial of ACD/MS Fragmenter-a useful tool for predicting MS fragmentation of small organic molecules.

ACD/MS Fragmenter makes it easy to review possible fragment ion structures, taking into account the type of ionization and the polarity of the molecule, then automatically applying standard fragmentation rules. The results are clearly displayed in a fragmentation tree. Pathways of interest can be isolated for closer analysis, or used for reports and presentations with just a few mouse clicks.

The latest version of ACD/MS Fragmenter also includes the ability to predict fragmentation for negative ionization experiments, making it possible to use ACD/MS Fragmenter on a wider range of chemical compounds.

The free 30-day trial offered on the ACD/Labs website will allow mass spectrometrists to evaluate the capabilities of ACD/MS Fragmenter using virtually any small organic molecule drawn or imported into ACD/ChemSketch. In addition to saving time and effort, the software's use of accepted fragmentation rules derived from the literature eliminates intangible problems such as inexperience or bias that may get in the way when examining unusual, but possible, fragmentation pathways.

ACD/MS Fragmenter shows all predicted fragment ion structures, which complements the spectrum assignment capabilities of ACD/MS Processor to give you a better understanding of the relationship between the structure and spectrum of your molecule. Simply attach a structure to your experimental spectrum and automatically assign fragments to peaks. Verify that the structure matches the spectrum, or compare several structures to find the best match.
