In this work, a sample of the resins portion of the Saturates, Aromatics, Resins, and Asphaltenes (SARA) fractions of crude oil was analysed using an orthogonal acceleration quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometer (oa-QToF MS) that incorporates a travelling wave ionmobility spectrometry (TWIMS) region. The ability to calibrate the ion mobility cell and generate sizes for the detected ions was also recognised as potentially having particular value for the implementation of conversion or hydrotreatment processes in the oil industry.
