The behaviour of a series of hydroxamate siderophores--microbially produced iron complexes - was investigated using electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry (ESI-MS). Three groups of iron hydroxamate siderophores, namely the ferrioxamines, ferrichromes and coprogens/fusigens, were separated by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) prior to ESI and MS(2) fragmentation. For the majority of the siderophores, both protonated molecules and sodium adducts were observed. The most abundant ion… CONTINUE READING
