Try papers by Vern Reinhold, Anne Dell or Jane Thomas-Oates for a start. I've put a couple of papers at the bottom to start with. Any of the ES MSMS fragmentations will apply to the ESI-TOF but the TOF will allow greater sensitivity and less sample usage. Hope this is of help to set you on the way.
