A data table defining neutral losses in LC-ESI-MS (positive mode).

data("neutral_losses_ESI")
``` |

A data frame with 45 observations on the following 3 variables.

`Name`

a character vector containing the fragment name used for plot annnotation

`Formula`

a character vector containing chemical formulas

`Mass`

a numeric vector containing the mass according to Formula

The data frame consists of two character columns ('Name' and 'Formula') and the numeric column 'Mass'. In a mass spectrum peak pairs are analyzed for mass differences similar to the ones defined in neutral_losses. If such a mass difference is observed, we can assume that the according 'Formula' is the true neutral loss observed in this spectrum. In a plot this peak pair would be connected by a grey line and annotated with the information from 'Name'. In formula evaluation this peak pair would be used to limit formula suggestions with respect to plausability, i.e. if mass fragments A and B exist with mass difference 16.0313 than we can assume that the respective sum formulas have to be different by CH4. In consequence we can exlude sum formula suggestions for B which do not have a valid corresponding sum formula in A and vice versa.

This list has been put together mnually by Jan Lisec analyzing multiple LC-ESI-MS (positive mode) data sets.
