Correlating droplet size with temperature changes in electrospray source by optical methods.

Abstract : We investigated how the temperature and size of charged droplets are affected by the electrospray ionization (ESI) process, using in situ measurements involving laser-induced fluorescence and Mie scattering on a thermal gradient focusing ESI source. Rhodamine dyes were employed as temperature indicators using ratiometric intensity based fluorescence techniques. The results were compared to lifetime-based techniques using tris(2,2'-bipyridyl)dichlororuthenium(II) hexahydrate, [Ru(bpy) 3 ] 2+). Both methods gave similar profiles. Nevertheless, the precision and sensitivity were higher for lifetime-based techniques in comparison to intensity-based techniques. Global warming (with ∆T ~10 K) of the ESI plume is reported while the size of the droplet decreases along the plume. The global warming indicates that the conductive thermal transfer (between the super-heated sheath gas and the solvent) is predominant and stronger than the cooling effect due to the evaporation of the droplets, and is well reproduced by a diffusion-controlled evaporation model. Thermal gradient focusing ESI sources therefore appear efficient sources for evaporating large amounts of solvent, along with an increase in temperature.
