    Description

    A multiple-ion isotope ratio mass spectrometer will be employed to study multidisciplinary scientific questions spanning isolated reactions through to biochemistry of whole plants. Use of stable isotopes and mass spectrometry provides a powerful approach to determine reaction rates in complex biological and chemical systems. Accurate simultaneous measurement of multiple species (ions) enables users to use stable isotopes to disentangling a network of competing biological processes. Our studies will identify reaction fluxes, isotope ratios and isotope exchange rates. These findings will pave the way for innovative and long-term research programs that foster creative exploration of important questions in chemistry and biology.
