Dimeric complex ions of the type [M(A-H)A]+, where M=metal ion (Co, Ni, Cu, and Zn) and A=ligand (lactic acid, methyl lactate or ethyl lactate), were generated in the gas phase under electrospray ionization conditions. The collision-induced dissociation spectra of [M(A-H)A]+ ions were recorded to study the behaviour of ligand and metal ions in decomposition(More)
The phytochemical study using Caralluma umbellata (Asclepiadaceae) whole plant allowed the isolation of a novel pregnane glycoside named carumbelloside-I (3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-->6)-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-3beta,14beta -dihydroxypregn-5-en-20-one). Carumbelloside-I was evaluated for both antinociceptive activity and anti-inflammatory activity. The(More)
A set of DNA tetranucleotides, which are 3'- or 5'-end extended versions of GCA, was used as chiral selectors for the discrimination of enantiomers of alpha-amino acids. The [X+Y-2H](2-) ions of the 1:1 complexes were generated by electrospraying a mixture of tetranucleotide (X) and amino acid (Y) solution. Chiral discrimination was achieved by studying the(More)
The DNA triplet GCA is successfully used as a chiral selector for the chiral discrimination of amino acids using amino acids themselves as a co-selector. Chiral discrimination was achieved by investigating the collision-induced dissociation spectra of the [X(A) + X(R) + 2Y - 2H](2-) ion generated by electrospraying a mixture of analyte amino acid (X(A)),(More)
Alkoxide anions, [M-H](-) from a series of aliphatic diols and alcohols are generated in the source under negative ion electrospray ionisation conditions by cone-voltage fragmentation of the corresponding [M + F](-) ions. The collision-induced dissociation (CID) spectra of [M-H](-) ions consist of [M-H-2H](-) ions, in addition to the other characteristic(More)
The major steps in understanding the origin of life are associated with the evolution of constituents of living systems which are responsible for their self-sustenance, growth and replication from simple molecules. Two important constituents in this context are (1) complex biochemical networks and membranes, (2) macromoleeules and macromolecular assembl ies(More)
The negative ion electrospray ionization (ESI) mass spectra of a series of dicarboxylic acids, a pair of isomeric (cis/trans) dicarboxylic acids and two pairs of isomeric (positional) substituted benzoic acids, including a pair of hydroxybenzoic acids, were recorded in the presence of halide ions (F(-), Cl(-), Br(-) and I(-)). The ESI mass spectra contained(More)
