The initial discovery that a heated inlet tube of a mass spectrometer is an ionization source producing ions from volatile, nonvolatile, small, and large molecules with charge states similar to electrospray ionization has been advanced to ionization requiring only the vacuum inherent with a mass spectrometer and a suitable matrix. This spontaneous ionization method was first applicable with the matrix...
