New Ultrasensitive Technique For Accurately Characterizing Biomolecules Is Developed By Cornell Chemists

... Just knowing the molecular weight at our accuracy level is a big help," said Fred W. McLafferty, Cornell professor emeritus of chemistry who led the work. Their accuracy provides less than 0.01 percent error. "With this, you can also measure masses of individual pieces of a molecule for further characte...
