The Mass Frontier application features several query and search functions available for retrieving spectra, trees, chromatograms, or structures from libraries. You can simultaneously search every library using these search options.
Search menu commands
Searches for the library spectral tree most closely matching an unknown spectral tree or subtree. For additional information, see Spectral Tree Search.
Searches for the library spectra most closely matching an unknown spectrum. For additional information, see Spectrum Search.
Searches for an exact match for the query structure (structure search), or searches for an exact match for the structure subset (substructure search). For additional information, see (Sub)Structure Search.
Searches for one or more compounds with a specified Chemical Abstract Service registry number. For additional information, see CAS Number Search.
