Stable isotopes

Description

Dataframe with stable isotopes.

Usage

1

Format

A data frame with 302 observations on the following 4 variables.

element

Chemical element

isotope

Stable isotopes of an element

mass

Relative atomic mass

abundance

Isotopic composition of an element

ratioC

Maximum number of atoms of an element for one C-atom in a molecule, based on 99.99 % of case molecules.

Details

The ratioC-value stems from a database survey conducted by Kind&Fiehn (2007); to disable, set value to 0. The list serves as input into several package nontarget-functions. The first column of the data frame also contains names of specific isotopes used for labeled compounds.
