The article focuses on several exceptional capabilities of ion mobility-mass spectrometry (IM-MS). It provides an explanation of several key measurement areas in which IM-MS will likely participate an increasing role in the near future. It presents a brief discussion of the use of ion mobility-mass spectrometry for biomolecular structural separations. It says that gas-phase separations on the basis of IM-MS show a great assurance for biomolecular separations of complex samples.
