The structural investigation of four bio- and synthetic melanins, obtained by the action of polyphenol oxidase from potatoes and Psalliota campestris mushrooms and of tyrosinase from Sepia officinalis on tryptophan, or by means of performic oxidation, has been carried out by thermal decomposition performed in the ion source of a mass spectrometer.
