Mass Spectrometry Software for Comprehensive Unknown Identification and Structure Characterization

Our Most Advanced MS Toolset for Structure Characterization

ACD/MS Structure ID Suite combines all the processing, interpretation, and characterization features available in ACD/MS Workbook Suite with additional tools to expand structure identification and verification for MS data.

Readily identify unknown MS components using an integrated combination of:

  • ChemSpider and PubChem database screening (by accurate mass and/or predicted molecular formula)
  • Structural filtering
  • Candidate list ranking by correspondence to measured mass fragmentation patterns and/or retention times.
  • Extract sample peaks, compiling them in the Table of Components for further structure characterization

  • Search chemical structure databases using the combination of a component's accurate parent mass and predicted molecular formula

A Simple and Efficient Workflow for MS Structure Searching and Verification

Filter structure candidates using fragment include/exclude lists
Filter structure candidates using fragment include/exclude lists

Use MS Structure ID Suite to identify potential structures for target masses in a two- or three-step process:

  1. Query locally installed ChemSpider and/or PubChem structural databases using target accurate mass values and/or predicted molecular formulae
  2. Examine structure hit lists, ranked by correspondence of each structure candidate’s predicted fragmentation to the experimental spectrum, and submit substructure include/exclude lists to reduce the number of results
  3. Or, rank structure candidates by estimated LC/MS or GC/MS retention time

Valuable Benefits of MS Structure ID Suite

MS Structure ID Suite represents an invaluable tool for efficient structure identification.

  • Gain access to over 100 million unique structures contained in the ChemSpider and PubChem databases
  • Generate extensive, unbiased, and relevant structure candidate lists
  • Rank hits according to alignment with target component MS spectra (based on predicted hit fragmentation), or retention time
  • Significantly streamline the process of structure characterization for known unknown MS components
Use the AutoAssignment Tool to calculate hit quality scores, in order to identify the best structure candidate
