This paper deals with a number of the benefits associated with a variety of tandem mass spectrometer geometries and the way in which these configurations have been applied to the solution of real problems. It discusses the use made of a variety of tandem mass spectrometry approaches to the study of analytical problems of industrial relevance. ICIs utilization of tandem mass spectrometry has grown substantially from an initial involvement in the early 1980s to a point where a number of instruments have been installed and used predominantly for trace analysis, structural studies and in the characterization of complex mixtures. We have selected a small number of examples of the use of the various tandem mass spectrometry approaches emphasizing the unique features of the technique.
