  Abstract:  Ion Mobility Spectrometry is, first at all, a vapors identification technique by measuring their ionic mobilities in the gaseous phase and at atmospheric pressure, under the influence of a weak electric field. The applications of Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) could be separated into the use of IMS instrument as stand-alone spectrometer and its use in hyphenated technologies (as a detector following chromatographic techniques or as a separator before a mass spectrometer). By using the IMS technology a wide range of chemical compounds (both organic and inorganic) at trace detection levels can be detected, but the most spectacular applications of the Ion Mobility Spectrometry are the military/security ones (chemical warfare agents, explosives and illicit drugs). However, there is an increasing trend towards the civilian applications, like the industrial process monitoring and the detection of the pollutants. This paper''s goal is to summarize the applications of Ion Mobility Spectrometry, which is definitely one of the most powerful trace detection techniques available today.
