Look-up tables for shorthand notation

9th August 2022

We have produced easy look-up tables for shorthand notation for lipid mass-spectrometric (MS) data. These will allow you to quickly find the correct shorthand notation for lipid data fitting validated MS-output, depending on the resolution of your experimental data.

The tables are based on Liebisch et al. J. Lipid Res. 61, 1–17 (2020).  This “fast-track” version presents succinct application rules and provides examples for hierarchical shorthand notation.
