  Abstract:  Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) is one of the most powerful and versatile analytical techniques currently available for the trace detection of chemicals, in the gas phase and at atmospheric pressure. IMS plays an important role in many practical applications, from industrial and environmental monitoring to narcotics and explosive detection. Also, IMS hand-held instrumentation is the backbone of chemical warfare agents (CWA) detection system in the USA and NATO countries. This paper describes the behavior of the CWA simulant methyl salicylate, using IMS and IMS/MS at room temperature in the negative operation mode. Ionic mobility spectra and atmospheric pressure ionization chemistry of methyl salicylate are presented.
