About the Topic

Day 1: Advanced LC/MS Practices

Course Objective:

Learn effective techniques for analyzing complex samples and characterizing organic compounds

Key Topics You'll Learn About

  • Principles and preferred practices for APCI LC/MS
  • Fundamentals and practices for optimal ESI (electrospray ionization)
  • Principles of multiple charging in electrospray mass spectra of biomolecules
  • Strategies for characterizing small molecules contained in biological samples via electrospray LC/MS and LC/MS/MS.
  • Sample preparation optimized for LC/MS and LC/MS/MS analyses
  • Initial strategies for interpreting collision-induced dissociation (CID) mass spectra of small pharmaceutical molecules.

Day 2: Interpretation of MS/MS CID Mass Spectra

 This relatively advanced course covers basic concepts for interpreting MS/MS collision-induced dissociation (CID) mass spectra of small molecules such as drugs, metabolites, impurities, degradants, environmental contaminants, etc.  This is a one-day course with six one-hour lectures including extensive problem solving.  The prospective student should have a good understanding of organic chemistry, reaction mechanisms, and the guidelines of physical organic chemistry.  An understanding of EI mass spectral interpretation techniques will also be helpful.

Key Topics You Will Learn

  • Strategies for approaching CID mass spectral interpretation
  • The importance of acquiring high-quality CID mass spectral information for interpretation purposes
  • The nitrogen rule, importance of stable isotope contributions, mass defects, the Retro Diels Alder reaction, accurate mass measurement, high resolution and related topics.
  • Differentiation between simple bond cleavages, alpha cleavages, rearrangements, and ring opening mechanisms
  • Rules for approaching an unknown structure characterization given a good CID mass spectrum
  • Relevance of data from triple quadrupole MS systems, Ion Trap MS, LC-TOF/MS, FTMS, Orbitraps, MSn and other modern analytical information
