In this paper we performed focused analyses of phospholipids by using the data of precursor ion scanning and neutral loss scanning of their polar head groups and fatty acyl moieties for the specific search of categorical phospholipids. By using precursor ion scanning or neutral loss scanning of polar head groups in the positive ion mode, more sensitive identification were obtained than that in the negative ion mode. Precursor ion scanning of carbonic anions in the negative ion mode was also… CONTINUE READING
