The positive and negative ionization characteristics of 20 different α-amino acids were investigated using Direct Analysis in Real Time (DART) mass spectrometry. Almost all of the amino acids M were ionized to generate the (de)protonated analytes [M ± H](±)via proton transfer reactions with the typical background ions H3O(+)(H2O)n and O2˙(-) and resonant(More)
Herein it is shown that a combination of direct analysis in real time (DART) with a corona discharge system consisting of only a needle electrode easily improves DART ionization efficiency. Positive and negative DC corona discharges led to a formation of abundant excited helium atoms as well as the reactant ions H3O(+)(H2O)n and O2˙(-) in the DART analyte(More)
