26, 2010, in the journal Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T), Kujawinski and colleagues showed that the highly powerful mass spec and their method were also well-suited to detect, measure, and definitively identify minute quantities of chemical compounds from the Deepwater Horizon spill, including a compound in the dispersant Corexit.
At its most basic, mass spec involves vaporizing a sample and electrically charging, or ionizing, the resulting molecules in a vacuum.

When they went into the mass spec business with the first benchtop mass spec, I could really see that this was an opportunity to get mass spectrometry, which was my field of interest at that time, into the hands of the researchers, not only in the core labs, but making it available to chemists who were doing research at the bench," he explained.
