Abstract

We describe an isotope coding strategy that enables simultaneous GC-MS analysis of multiple samples for substrate identification and quantification. The method relies on direct measurement of isotopic ethyl carbenium ions serving as mass spectral tags in a zone of minimal interference (ZMI) at m/z 31-37. Sample aldehyde and ketone mixtures were reacted with isotopic 2-aminooxyethyl propionates to illustrate the method, which determined the relative abundance of the mixed compounds with an average 95% accuracy. ZMI reporter ion detection also enables chemoselective substrate profiling and absolute quantification, as demonstrated using a biologically derived sample.
