Are you sure you are talking about MS? ppm usually occurs in the context  
of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy where it denotes the  
chemical shift of a signal with respect to some reference compound. I.e.,  
if the reference signal is at 400 MHz, a 1 ppm signal would be at 400.0004  
MHz.
