New sheathless interface for coupling capillary electrophoresis to electrospray mass spectrometry evaluated by the analysis of fatty acids and prostaglandins

New sheathless interface for coupling capillary electrophoresis to electrospray mass spectrometry evaluated by the analysis of fatty acids and prostaglandins

Journal of Chromatography A 854(1-2): 141-154, Aug 27

A new interface for capillary electrophoresis electrospray ionization (CE-ESI) is presented. High voltage is applied at the outlet of the separation capillary by a stainless steel tube, a so called liner, through which the capillary is led. A compensating current between the liquid and the liner is maintained by a natural liquid film, which is built up at the outer surface of the capillary end. Operable potential ranges for differently treated capillary ends have been examined. The liner has been evaluated for the analysis of fatty acids and prostaglandins, all run with the ESI in the negative ionization mode. This simple stainless steel liner should fill the gap, which has prevented CE-MS from being the successful tool, which it has the potential for, namely fast and unattended measurements of analytes in the nM range in complex mixtures.
