Volume 5: Elemental and Isotope Ratio Mass Spectrometry This volume focuses on (1) the plethora of mostly atomic ionization techniques that have been coupled to MS for elemental analysis, the measurement of isotope ratios, and even the determination of inorganic compounds and (2) the precise measurement of isotope ratios of organic elements as small gas molecules by isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS).

Author Biography - Diane Beauchemin
Diane Beauchemin is Professor of Chemistry at Queen's University, Kingsland, Ontario, Canada. Her research efforts are focused on inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICPMS), aiming to understand the limitations of this technique to identify ways of alleviating them and to expand the range of application of ICPMS (including to speciation analysis and the determination of bio-accessibility). She is considered such an authority that she is regularly invited to write a critical fundamental review on ICPMS by Analytical Chemistry, the analytical journal with the highest impact factor. In addition to these reviews, she has authored over 90 scientific publications, including books and several book chapters. She co-edited Volume 5 of the Encyclopedia of Mass Spectrometry (Elsevier 2010). From 2003 to 2006, she was President of the Canadian Society for Analytical Sciences and Spectroscopy.
