Special Issue "Recent Analysis and Applications of Mass Spectrum on Biochemistry"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2023) | Viewed by 6295
Interests: analytical chemistry; mass spectrometry; quantitative and structural analyses; theoretical and quantum chemistry
The Special Issue is devoted to recent achievements and the application of mass spectrometric methods to the field of biochemistry. The tremendous advances and superior performances of soft-ionization mass spectrometry have risen to a special prominence recently among robust analytical methods, thus making it a gold standard of analytical practice. Mass spectrometry has found irreplaceable applications in analytical science as diverse as environmental biochemistry, foodomics, clinical diagnostics, toxicology, medicine, etc. It completely determines and describes the biological transformations of chemicals. Great progress has been achieved not only by looking at omics methods, but also imaging ones for molecular mapping in biological tissues, thus, gaining crucial new knowledge of local metabolism and an in-depth understanding of biochemical processes, in vivo.
Besides, among hard-ionization approaches, techniques of inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry have recently been regarded as methods of choice for simultaneously quantifying trace amounts of isotope ions of elements in biological fluids. Protocols have been applied routinely in clinical laboratories, recently.
Therefore, the major aim of the Special Issue is to introduce the reader to recent advances and applications of soft- and hard-ionization mass spectrometric methods to understand comprehensively biochemical transformations in environmental, food, and biological samples.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
