Synthesis of benzofurazan derivatization reagents for carboxylic acids in liquid chromatography/electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry.


PMID 17590866

Abstract

The applicability of benzofurazan derivatization regents to carboxylic acids analysis in LC/ESI-MS/MS (high-performance liquid chromatography/electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry) was examined. The product ion spectra of DAABD-AE {4-[2-(N,N-dimethylamino)ethylaminosulfonyl]-7-(2-aminoethylamino)-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole}, DAABD-PZ {4-[2-(N,N-dimethylamino)ethylaminosulfonyl]-7-N-piperazino-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole}, DAABD-PiCZ {4-[4-carbazoylpiperidin-1-yl]-7-[2-(N,N-dimethylamino)ethylaminosulfonyl]-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole}, DAABD-ProCZ {4-[2-carbazoylpyrrolidin-1-yl]-7-[2-(N,N-dimethylamino) ethylaminosulfonyl]-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole} and DAABD-Apy {4-[2-(N,N-dimethylamino)ethylaminosulfonyl]-7-(3-aminopyrrolidin-1-yl)-2,1,3-benzoxadiazole}, and their acetylated compounds were obtained. An intense fragment ion at m/z 151 corresponding to (dimethylamino)ethylaminosulfonyl moiety was observed in each spectra, suggesting that these reagents were suitable for ESI-MS/MS analysis. DAABD-AE, DAABD-APy and DAABD-PZ were applied to the analysis of octanoic acid and it was found that DAABD-AE and DAABD-APy gave high signal intensity suitable for LC/ESI-MS/MS.
