Soft ionization mass spectroscopy is a powerful technique for characterizing polymer structures. A brief description of the different spectrometric techniques available for polymer analyses, including MALDI-TOF, ESI-MS, and other recent methods, is given. The techniques are compared and the limitations and advantages are discussed. The possible side reactions that can occur during MALDI-TOF analysis are detailed and the importance of correct sample preparation is emphasized. ESI-MS is also given attention and emphasis is placed on the limitations and optimization of samples for successful analyses.
