Multiply deprotonated polypeptide and protein molecules, (M - nH)n-, produced from pH approximately 11 aqueous solutions, are analyzed by electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). Aqueous ammonium hydroxide solutions of the analyte are shown to be preferable to sodium hydroxide solutions for negative-ion ESI due to the production of multiply(More)
High resolution mass spectrometry and tandem mass spectrometry analyses of the major ions of digoxin formed by fast atom bombardment are presented and discussed to investigate the mechanisms through which fragment ions are formed. Similar cardiac glycosides are also analyzed to provide support for the proposed fragment assignments. Remote site fragmentation(More)
The facile assembly of metal nanostructured arrays is a fundamental step in the design of plasmon enhanced chemical sensing and solar cell architectures. Here we have investigated methods of creating controlled formations of two-dimensional periodic arrays comprised of 20 nm Au nanoparticles (NPs) on a hydrophilic polymer surface using particle lithography.(More)
The analysis of cardiac glycosides by the desorption/ionization (D/I) mass spectrometric technique potassium ion ionization of desorbed species (K+IDS) is presented. K+IDS mass spectra of digitonin, digoxin, digoxigenin, digitoxin and ouabain are discussed to demonstrate the capabilities of this D/I method. The K+IDS analysis consists of two steps: thermal(More)
