SWGDRUG Mass Spectral Library

SWGDRUG has compiled a mass spectral library from a variety of sources, containing drugs and drug-related compounds. All spectra were collected using electron impact mass spectrometry systems. This library is available for download from this website.

DISCLAIMER: Although SWGDRUG makes an effort to review the accuracy of spectra prior to entry, this library should only be used as an analytical tool. SWGDRUG recommends the use of traceable reference materials to support identifications of drugs ( please see SWGDRUG Recommendation, Part IV B – Quality Assurance/Validation of Analytical Methods, Section 2.3 on Reference Materials).

AFSN IDWG partners with SWGDRUG to host the Shimadzu format for the SWGDRUG MS Library. All other versions (NIST format, Agilent format and NIST Text) are available at SWGDRUG website
