In the current study, quantitative structure-retention relationships (QSRR) were constructed based on data obtained by a LC-(ESI)-QTOF-MS/MS method for the determination of amino acid analogues, following their derivatization via chloroformate esters. Molecules were derivatized via n-propyl chloroformate/n-propanol mediated reaction. Derivatives

Chronic inhalation of aerosolized β-N-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA) could serve as potenital route for exposure to this cyanobacterial neurotoxin implicated in the development of neurodegenerative disease. We investigated environmental aerosol BMAA loads and the fate of inhaled isotopically labeled aerosolized BMAA in

This paper presents a LC-MS/MS method for the determination of antiepileptic drug vigabatrin in dried plasma spots (DPS). Due to its zwitterionic chemical structure, a pre-column derivatization procedure was performed, aiming to yield enhanced ionization efficiency and improved chromatographic behaviour.
