Vitamin C: an experimental and theoretical study on the gas-phase structure and ion energetics of protonated ascorbic acid.

Abstract

In order to investigate the gas-phase mechanisms of the acid catalyzed degradation of ascorbic acid (AA) to furan, we undertook a mass spectrometric (ESI/TQ/MS) and theoretical investigation at the B3LYP/6-31 + G(d,p) level of theory. The gaseous reactant species, the protonated AA, [C6 H8 O6 ]H+ , were generated by electrospray ionization of a 10-3  M H2 O… (More)
