- Abstract: This talk is a somewhat disjointed and idiosyncratic tour through early and middle years of mass spectrometry. Do you remember (or remember reading about) chemistry before isotopes, the whole number rule, packing fraction, the Mecke-Childs factor, mass (spectroscopy, spectrography, spectrometry), chart/oscillographic recorders, middle molecule mass spectrometry, plasma desorption, plasma chromatography, fragmentation mechanisms, Wahrhaftig diagrams, IP, AP, FAB, FI, FD, CI, RIM, PPINICI?
- Bio: Burnaby Munson obtained his BA and PhD in chemistry from the University of Texas in Austin. He began research in mass spectrometry and gaseous ion/molecule reactions with Joe L. Franklin, Jr. and Frank H Field in Baytown, Texas at the Research and Development Division of the Humble Oil and Refining Co. - then Esso Research and Engineering, then Exxon, and now Exxon-Mobil. He and Frank Field developed the technique of chemical ionization mass spectrometry - an analytical application of gaseous ion/molecule reactions. He joined the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department of the University of Delaware in 1967, where he currently holds the C. Eugene Bennett Chair in Chemistry. His research for 45 years or so involved kinetics, thermochemistry, and analytical applications of gaseous ion/molecule reactions. He has received the Field and Franklin Award in mass spectrometry from the American Chemical Society, the Distinguished Contribution Award from the American Society for Mass Spectrometry, the Award for Outstanding Achievements in Fields of Analytical Chemistry from the Eastern Analytical Symposium and the Chemical Pioneer Award from the American Institute of Chemists.
