This application note describes how Waters Xevo G2 QTof can be used to determine polymer end groups, using Poly Methyl Methacrylate (PMMA) as a model example. The Xevo G2 QTof is a hybrid Quadrupole Time-of-Flight mass spectrometer. The quadrupole allows precursor ions to be selected for fragmentation, which provides the analyst with additional structural information, a cleaner spectrum, and increases confidence in the origin of the ions detected.
