Samples may be submitted
for analysis by facility staff by filling out the Mass Spectrometry
Sample Submission form available in the facility or in PDF
format here. The form should be filled out as completely as
possible with the information requested, including contact information,
sample description, probable structure, molecular formula, and expected
molecular weight (use monoisotopic mass for compounds <1500 amu.)
Indicate the solvent, if any, in which the sample is submitted.
If not in solution, indicate an appropriate volatile solvent in
which to dissolve the sample.
Samples soluble in organic
solvents should be submitted in 1 dram glass vials with teflon lined
screwcaps. Samples may be submitted neat or dissolved in an appropriate
volatile solvent. Water soluble samples may be submitted in 1 mL
plastic microcentrifuge tubes. Generally, a few milligrams of compound
