Ionic liquids are interesting solvents for a number of applications in chemistry and biotechnology. We characterized five different ionic liquids by laser desorption/ionization (LDI) and by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry (MS) and studied the analysis of amino acids, peptides and proteins dissolved in these solvents.(More)
A major problem hampering the use of matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry for quantitative measurements is the inhomogeneous distribution of analytes and matrices in solid sample preparations. The use of ionic liquids as matrices for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of low molecular weight compounds like amino(More)
Ionic liquid matrixes (ILM) have been shown to allow very homogeneous sample preparations, facilitating relative quantifications using internal standards in matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI-MS). In the present work, the ability to perform quantifications of peptides without using internal standards in these matrixes was(More)
Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry has become an indispensable tool for identification of proteins by peptide mass-fingerprint analysis. Selection of the matrix, addition of matrix additives, and sample-preparation techniques are known to affect the quality of the spectra and hence protein identification. We investigated the(More)
