Introducing the Wiley Registry of Mass Spectral Data, 11th edition:
- World's largest library of electron ionization (EI) mass spectra
— Over 775,500 mass spectra for 599,700 unique compounds.
It enables you to
identify global unknown compounds from EI mass spectra,
with the highest likelihood given its unparalleled size and breadth.
- Most spectra are accompanied by searchable chemical structure, trivial name, molecular formula, molecular weight, nominal mass and base peak.
- Applications include untargeted GC/MS screening of EI spectra, accurate mass workflows with MS-TOF spectra, and identification with other search constraints.
- Developed over 40 years by Wiley and Dr. Fred McLafferty Spectra are sourced from leading laboratories throughout the world.
- Uses the same search software as the NIST 17 spectral library and compatible with most MS data systems.
Improvements to the Wiley Registry 11th from the 10th edition include
- Increased spectra — 56,500 and 113,500 more spectra than the 10th and 9th editions, respectively.
- Expansion of coverage of metabolites and designer drugs in the EI library
- Improved quality — An extensive review of the library included removal and sequestration of suspect spectra from the main library and partition of excess replicate spectra (beyond 4 replicates) into a separate replicate library. The result is a main library that has increased overall breadth and improved spectral search.
- Upgrade discount now available to ANY previous version of Wiley Registry, even a very old versions.
Identification of unknowns begins with untargeted analysis. The Wiley Registry provides researchers with the most assurance that their untargeted spectral search is the broadest available. The Wiley Registry™ of Mass Spectral Data is one of the most trusted and comprehensive mass spectral libraries in the world, and the gold standard for detection, identification and quantification in
Combine it with NIST 17!
- NIST 17 is a smaller but strongly trusted mass spectral library, which can be purchased separately (as a separate database) or optionally combined with Wiley Registry in a single database removing duplicate spectra (de-duplicated) for improved spectral searching. A separate original copy of NIST is included with the combined library.
- Wiley 11 contains 434,378 more compounds than in the NIST 17 EI library, and 78% of the compounds featured in the Wiley Registry 11th are not found in the NIST 2017 database.
- But about 50% of the NIST 17 EI compounds are not in Wiley Registry 11th, and NIST 17 adds MS/MS and GC/RI data too, so combining offers the best of both.
|The Wiley 11/NIST 14 spectra sub-libraries|
|EI "main" library||947,134 mass spectra|
|EI "replicate" library||23,772 mass spectra|
|EI "removed" library||6,653 mass spectra|
|MS/MS library (from NIST)||234,284 mass spectra|
To check for compounds in the NIST or Wiley libraries, you may search names of compounds online.
The Wiley Registry™ of Mass Spectral Data started in the early 1960s through a collaboration of Drs. Einar Stenhagen, Sixten Abrahamsson, and Fred W. McLafferty, culminating in its publication in print in 1968 as the Atlas of Mass Spectral Data. The criteria for collecting the spectra are based on those established by the Non-Petroleum Mass Spectrometrists (NPMS) in 1956 for the collection of "Uncertified" EI mass spectra. These spectra were for compounds that were either new or had not necessarily been measured using standards. This was opposed to the American Petroleum Institute™s (API) collection, which insisted on "perfect" contributions); Dr. McLafferty was the first Chair of the NPMS committee. The reasons for choosing a looser criterion can be found in the most fundamental science behind mass spectrometry and its primary use. The most important use of an EI mass spectral database is for the identification of unknown mass spectra, especially those of "global unknowns." For this, the user needs a database giving the highest probability that the best match(s) for her/his unknown mass spectrum will be correct or of a closely related compound. In contrast to other "spectroscopies," mass spectrometry structural information comes from destroying the molecule. Rigid instrumentation standards gave the "perfect" API spectrum; however, without standards, a "perfect" MS spectrum is an oxymoron. Not only do the product yields vary dramatically with temperature, pressure, instrumental mass discrimination, etc., but dissociation can occur before ionization, even from bimolecular reactions.

About the Author
The most important use of an EI mass spectral database is for the identification of unknown mass spectra, especially those of "global unknowns". — Dr. Fred W. McLafferty
Fred W. McLafferty, born in 1923, received his undergraduate degree from University of Nebraska, his PhD from Cornell and his postdoctorate from University of Iowa. In 1950, he became responsible for mass spectrometry and gas chromatography at the Dow Chemical Co. In 1964, he moved to Purdue and four years later back to Cornell where he still remains an active scientist. Today, Fred McLafferty has co-authored over 450 scientific publications and overseen the Wiley Registry for the apst 40 years. Fred McLafferty became a member of the National Academy of Sciences in 1982 and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1985. Among the number of awards received by Fred McLafferty, we note the Analytical Chemistry Fisher Award in 1981, the J.J. Thomson Gold Medal in 1985, the ACS award on Instrumentation in 1989 and the Mass Spectrometry Field and Franklin Award in 1989.
Professor Fred McLafferty is a name synonymous with the development and refinement of the mass spectrometric techniques. Dr. McLafferty was the founding father of the fundamental mechanistic scheme in mass spectrometry with systematic interpretation of mass spectra that eventually has made computerised spectral interpretation possible. Dr. McLafferty's pioneering contributions involve many areas like gaseous ion reactions (McLafferty rearrangement), instrumentation (GC/MS, LC/MS, MS/MS), special techniques (collision activated dissociation, neutralization-reionization, electron capture dissociation, pico-spray), computer data acquisition, reduction, and identification (Probability Base Matching) reference data (392K spectra), and high resolution MS/MS characterization of biomolecules and gas-phase protein folding.

Each library has been tested and optimized to run on the current versions of most manufacturer's software. The follows formats are included on the DVD:
- NIST MS Search binary format (compatible with most mass spectrometry software including Agilent, Bruker/Varian, DANI, Leco, PerkinElmer, Thermo XCalibur, Thermo Chromeleon, and Waters),
- Agilent Chemstation/MassHunter,
- Shimadzu GCMS Solution,
- PerkinElmer TurboMass,
- Waters MassLynx.
System requirements: Windows XP(SP3)/Vista/7.0/8.0/8.1/10, DVD drive, 2GB RAM, 2-16GB free disk space, compatible mass spectrometry software.
Includes: • Free Wiley technical support • The most formats available on one disc • Easy, well-documented installation instructions
The upgrade policy is now more relaxed! Previous versions (even an old version as far back as 7th) qualify for the upgrade. The Wiley upgrade (#WILEY11U) requires proof of purchase of any previous version of the Wiley Registry. The Wiley+NIST upgrade (#WILEY11N17U) also requires proof of purchase of any previous version of NIST.
