Carbohydrate analysis is challenging due to lack of sensitive detection and efficient separation methods. Although matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry (MS) is a sensitive tool, the low ionization efficiency of carbohydrates makes mass analyses inefficient. This work systematically examines the correlation between MALDI-MS(More)
This work demonstrates a method to prepare homogeneous distributions of analytes to improve data reproducibility in matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry (MS). Natural-air drying processes normally result in unwanted heterogeneous spatial distributions of analytes in MALDI crystals and make quantitative analysis difficult.(More)
The trimethylsilyl (TMS) derivative is one of the most widely utilized derivatives for analyzing polar compounds by gas chromatography. An ion two mass units higher than the protonated molecular ion was observed in analyzing TMS-monocarboxylic acids by using gas chromatography electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (GC-ESI/MS). The structure of the M + 2(More)
This protocol demonstrates a simple sample preparation to reduce spatial heterogeneity in ion signals during matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) mass spectrometry. The heterogeneity of ion signals is a severe problem in MALDI, which results in poor data reproducibility and makes MALDI unsuitable for quantitative analysis. By regulating(More)
