The new Thermo Scientific LC IsoLink interface enables the on-line coupling of a liquid chromatograph to a stable isotope ratio mass spectrometer. It significantly reduces the preparation steps and the analysis time. We present an analytical method for the isotope ratio analysis of organic acids in different plants extracts. First results are reported and discussed.
- Carbon isotopes
- Organic acids
