We report the use of free solution capillary electrophoresis to identify and quantify low-molecular-mass compounds found in normal and uremic serum as well as in hemodialysate fluid. The method reported provides a multicomponent analysis, allowing a single-step screening for more than 19 metabolites in less than 16 min. Serum samples from healthy(More)
Polar effects are demonstrated to be a key factor in controlling the reactivities of related charged phenyl radicals in different exothermic atom and group abstraction reactions in the gas phase. The effects of various meta substituents on the phenyl radicals' reactivity were probed via the measurement of bimolecular reaction rate constants by using Fourier(More)
A chemical ionization method is reported for distinction of diastereomeric hydroxysteroids by using Fourier-transform ion cyclotron mass spectrometry (FT-ICR). Certain phosphenium ions are demonstrated to react with stereoisomeric steroids to yield qualitatively different product ions. For example, 1,3,5(10)-estratriene-3,16beta,17beta-triol (cis-estriol)(More)
Polar effects are demonstrated to play an important role in controlling the reactivity of polyaromatic sigma-radicals that are structurally related to the active intermediates of the enediyne anticancer type antibiotics. This was accomplished by measuring the rate constants of hydrogen atom abstraction for novel, charged dehydroquinolines,(More)
