Abstract

The gas-phase chemistry of calixarene-amino acid complexes was studied. The modified calix[6]arene was shown to bind strongly to amino acids to produce gas-phase complexes that withstand the matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) process. Amino acid solutions were prepared at a concentration of 100 mg/mL in water. Molecular modeling calculations indicates that the more basic amino acids forms stable inclusion complexes under temperature annealing conditions whereas the less basic amino acids are not stable under the same conditions.
