Potentially harmful by-products from hydraulic fracturing, including bromide, iodide and fracking chemicals, can contaminate drinking water. Dr. Susan Richardson, Professor of Chemistry at the University of South Carolina and ASMS President for 2020, shares her team’s research on the impact of fracking on the safety of drinking water. She explains how, by using high-resolution mass spectrometry, GC-MS and LC-MS, they are able to capture and assess all unknown chemicals to ensure drinking water is as safe as possible.
