Investigations of model catalysts are very often performed in ultra-high vacuum for ensuring very well-defined systems. Usually, product molecule detection is performed by electron impact (EI) ionization in a quadrupole mass spectrometer. While this method offers the possibilities of continuous measurements and high sensitivity, it features the drawback that a mass scan has to be performed to detect the masses of all reaction products. In addition, the discrimination between isobars is difficult to achieve because of the unselective properties of EI ionization. In this work we present a time-of-flight MS in combination with laser ionization. Due to the setup, this system allows for a very sensitive detection of isobaric species. In this poster the detection principle is illustrated and first proof-of-principle measurements are shown.
