Isotopes and Mass Spectrometry

An atom is the smallest unit which forms the basis of innumerable chemical properties that are exhibited by an element. The scope of reactions although primarily influenced by the interaction of electrons, the number of protons differentiates an element from every other element. Neutrons, although not changing the chemical properties radically, do however play a ...
