- The database of
natural products has already been built and contains
about 300,000 natural product information, but it only has information
on the molecular structure and origin of natural products.
- There is very
little MS/MS mass spectrometry data for natural products.
- There are very
few data on the physical properties and physiological
activity of natural products.
- Analyzing the
unknown extracts of a natural substances through a mass
spectrometer is limited due to lack of MS/MS spectral library.
- It is difficult
to analyze physical properties and physiological
activity without knowing what the active ingredients of potent natural
- After all, there
are many difficulties in commercializing active
components by extracting natural products.
- Get tandem mass
spectrometry (MS/MS) data for natural products.
- Identify the
active components from the database that contains the tandem mass
spectrometry (MS/MS) library.
