A reversed-phase liquid chromatographic method combined with fluorescence and multiple mass spectrometric detection in series is presented for the separation and structure elucidation of bisphenol A diglycidyl ether (BADGE) and novolac glycidyl ether (NOGE) derivatives. Atmospheric pressure chemical ionization in the positive ion mode and collision induced fragmentation in the ion trap allowed identification of BADGE- and NOGE-related compounds originating from reactions of the glycidyl ethers… CONTINUE READING
