NORMAN MassBank takes a lead in collecting and interpreting open access environmental mass spectral data


In pursuit of its long-term goal of improving the identification of environmental unknowns and, consequently, the prioritisation of emerging substances, NORMAN started close co-operation with the global ‘metabolomics’ MassBank consortium ( in August 2012. With a strict focus on environmental data the NORMAN MassBank is now available at the mirror server in addition to the full NORMAN MassBank address The mass spectral information obtained from NORMAN MassBank will aid the further development of sophisticated search and classification strategies for the identification of unknowns. Furthermore, sharing of mass spectral data allows free-of-charge access to thousands of mass spectra for an increasing number of relevant environmental compounds: in contrast to expensive commercial libraries or home-made libraries with a limited subset of compounds.
