SolariX XR FT-ICR MS instrument (Bruker Daltonik GmbH, Bremen, Germany) equipped with a refrigerated, 9.4 T actively shielded superconducting magnet (Bruker Biospin, Wissembourg, France) and a Paracell analyzer cell. The ionization of the samples is performed an ESI ion source (Bruker Daltonik GmbH, Bremen, Germany). FT-ICR MS provides a confident assignment of the unique elemental composition for each mass-spectrum peak. FT-ICR MS is one of the most powerful tools that can be used for the characterization of complex organic compounds in atmospheric aerosols at the molecular level.
