Gas chromatography combined with mass spectrometry offers a convenient method for the separation and identification of hydroxy dicarboxylic acids as open-chain trimethylsilyl (Me3Si) derivatives. Mass spectra were studied of aldaric (tartronic, tartaric, pentaric and hexaric) acids and deoxyaldaric (malic, 2-deoxypentaric, 2-deoxyhexaric, 3-deoxypentaric… CONTINUE READING
