The NJ-ACS Mass Spectrometry Discussion Group (MSDG) was formed in 1989 to promote and disseminate knowledge of mass spectrometry and related topics.
MSDG is an integral part of the American Chemical Society (ACS) North Jersey Section. Membership includes over 1,100 scientists involved in research and development both at academic, industrial and governmental laboratories.
Although the majority of our members reside in New Jersey, some come from its neighbor states of New York and Pennsylvania. Our interests include advancement of techniques and instrumentation in mass spectrometry, as well as application of mass spectrometry in biological sciences, pharmaceutical development, environmental testing, and beyond.
MSDG sponsors the following activities:
- Vendor-sponsored seminars that highly focus on mass spectrometric applications in pharmaceutical, biotech, clinical, chemical, environmental sciences.
- New Jersey Regional Award for Distinguished Achievements in Mass Spectrometry
- New Jersey Early Career Award in Mass Spectrometry
- New Jersey Distinguished Service Award in Mass Spectrometry

- MSDG has sponsored the science and engineering program for young cadet of Civil Air Patrol – NJ units. Civil Air Patrol is one of youth programs of US Air force. NJ ACS MSDG is a sponsor of New Jersey local community. It serves the purpose for promoting science among middle school students.
MSDG also hosts The Annual Vendor Show on Mass Spectrometry that is attended by more than 300 local mass spectrometry users and major manufacturers and service providers related to mass spectrometry field.
