Introduction to MassHunter Qualitative Analysis for Agilent GC/MS – Compound View.
Steps to follow:
|Note: Use the demonstration data files evaldemo.d, alkdemo.d, barbdemo.d at C:\GCMS\msdemo.|
The Compounds View is used when you want to find and identify compounds. This view allows you to:
- Provides a compound-centric view of the data files.
- View compound data simultaneously in different windows.
- Change the selected compound in the Compound List.
- Switch between data files in the Sample Table.
- Use the Compound Mining algorithms.
- Apply multi-step workflows for routine analysis tasks.
The Compounds View default layout has a Menu Bar, a Toolbar, and a Main Window with graphs and tables (see Figure 1).
Sample Table: Table of sample-level information.
Compound List: A list of compounds found in the current sample selected in the Sample Table.
Compound Identification Results: Details of the identification of the current compound selected in the Compound List.
Sample Chromatogram Results: Interactive chromatogram results for the sample in the Sample Table.
Compound Chromatogram Results: The chromatogram for the current compound selected in the Compound List.
Compound MS Spectrum Results: Display of MS spectra for the current compound selected in the Compound List.
The Compound View allows you to move individual windows to different positions, change the size of a window, tab them with other windows, and float the window outside of the main window. These changes can be saved as a new layout file (Configuration > Windows Layout > Save Layout…).
You can restore the default layout (Configuration > Window Layouts > Load Default Layout).
