Short summary
An easy-to-use method of estimating the mass-dependent transmission efficiency of a CIMS is presented. It makes use of depleting nitrate primary ions by different perfluorinated acids to obtain the transmission efficiency of these acids relative to the primary ion. Knowledge about the transmission efficiency is crucial for, e.g., quantification of extremely low volatile organic compounds.
