A novel derivatization-based liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry method for quantitative characterization of naphthenic acid isomer profiles in environmental waters.

Abstract

A method for quantitative characterization of naphthenic acid (NA) isomer groups by carbon number and extent of cyclization was developed and validated with water samples from northern Alberta. Following solid phase extraction, NAs undergo derivatization with N-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-N'-ethylcarbodiimide (EDC) allowing detection by positive electrospray… (More)
