Google is too dumb to let me put the list of news in this column and falsely claims that all my pages are self-duplicates.

Hydrogen analyses of aqueous fluids by mass
spectrometry are wrong
Hydrogen (H2) is a by-product of
the ionization of water in the mass spectrometer ionizer.
Analyses of hydrogen in fluid inclusion fluids
should not be done by mass spectrometry. Laser raman analysis
should be used instead.
Mass spectrometry is often used to analyse the chemical composition
of fluids within fluid inclusions. Many studies have observed
hydrogen based on these analyses. However the reported hydrogen
contents are often surprisingly high. Some authors have realized
that there is a problem and have proposed that the hydrogen has come
from the chemical reduction of water during the analyses, although
this is thermodynamically improbable. However there is an
alternative explanation. The problem is due to an incomplete
understanding of the ionization process in the ionizer of the mass
spectrometer and that H2 (mass 2) is a spurious byproduct
of the ionization of water. The discussions here explain the issues
relating to hydrogen analyses in fluid inclusions using mass
