2017 Vol. 35 (7): 677-682 [Abstract] ( 32 ) [Full Text(HTML)] () [PDF 889KB] ( 5 )    DOI: 10.3724/SP.J.1123.2017.03009

A method for the rapid and simultaneous determination of spirotetramat (BYI08330) and its four metabolites in milk was developed with ultra performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS). The samples were extracted with acetonitrile for precipitating proteins, degreased with hexane, and analyzed by UPLC-MS/MS in positive electrospray ionization and multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mode. Good linear relationships between peak areas and mass concentrations of the analytes were obtained in the range of 0.5-50 μ g/L with correlation coefficients greater than 0.998 (n=6). The limits of detection (LODs, S/N=3) and limits of quantification (LOQs, S/N=10) were 0.05-0.30 μ g/L and 0.17-1.00 μ g/L, respectively. The recoveries at the spiked levels of 1.0, 2.0 and 10 μ g/L were in the range of 80.0%-108.8% with relative standard deviations (RSDs) of 4.8%-15.2% (n=6). The method is fast, sensitive and accurate, and can be used to simultaneously determine BYI08330 and its four metabolites in milk.

An off-line two dimensional reversed-phase liquid chromatography/supercritical fluid chromatography (2D RPLC/SFC) method was developed for the separation of the seeds of Trichosanthes kirilowii Maxim. (T. kirilowii.). In the experiment, RPLC was used in the first dimension to analyze the samples. And 12 fractions (F1-F12) were obtained according to the chromatographic peak collection mode, the fractions were re-analyzed in both RPLC and SFC modes. The results clearly showed that this 2D method had good orthogonality. The SFC was used as the second dimension. Ethanol-n-hexane (3:7, v/v) was used as a modifier in SFC. The modifier could provide appropriate elution power. When the sample load increased, it could also ensure the solubility of samples. The 2D RPLC/SFC method had obvious advantages for separating the compounds with similar properties, enriching and purifying the trace components. Finally, 150 peaks could be detected. The off-line 2D RPLC/SFC method will be further enlarged to a preparative level for preparation of compounds. The method can provide a practical reference for the purification of chemical constituents and material basis research of the seeds of T. kirilowii. in the future.

2017 Vol. 35 (7): 688-695 [Abstract] ( 22 ) [Full Text(HTML)] () [PDF 4555KB] ( 2 )    DOI: 10.3724/SP.J.1123.2017.05014

An acylsemicarbazide-based porous organic polymer (POP) was facilely prepared by the polymerization of benzene-1,3,5-tricarbohydrazide (BTZ) and 1,4-phenylene diisocyanate (PDI). The physical properties of as-synthesized material were characterized by Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), solid-state cross polarisation magic angle spinning carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance (CP-MAS 13C NMR), nitrogen adsorption/desorption measurement, water contact angle and so on. The specific surface area was 166 m2/g, and the water contact angle was 46.4°, exhibiting hydrophilic property of the porous material. Thus, POP-1 was tried to be used for glycopeptides enrichment from tryptic digest of standard protein and complex biosamples in hydrophilic mode. The 19 typical N-linked glycopeptides were identified from 500 fmol tryptic digest of immunoglobulin G (IgG) from human serum by matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF/MS) analysis, meanwhile, 1919 unique glycopeptides with 1350 N-glycosylation sites from 605 different N-linked glycoproteins were identified from 100 μ g mouse liver tryptic digest by capillary liquid chromatography (cLC)-MS/MS analysis. These results demonstrated the great potential of POP-1 for glycoproteome analysis.

Preparation of cysteine-click maltose modified silica as a hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography material for the enrichment of glycopeptides
2017 Vol. 35 (7): 696-702 [Abstract] ( 25 ) [Full Text(HTML)] () [PDF 8472KB] ( 3 )    DOI: 10.3724/SP.J.1123.2017.03002

Because of the low abundance of glycoprotein and glycopeptide in complex biological samples, it is urgent to develop an efficient method for glycopeptide enrichment in comprehensive and in-depth glycoproteomes research. Herein, a novel hydrophilic silica was developed through surface modification with cysteine-click maltose (Cys-Mal@SiO2). The developed hydrophilic silica was packed into a solid phase extraction (SPE) column, and applied to the highly selective enrichment and identification of N-linked glycopeptides. The Cys-Mal@SiO2 demonstrated better identification capability over Cys@SiO2, Mal@SiO2 and commercial hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography (HILIC) in glycopeptide enrichment due to the synergistic effect of the two kinds of hydrophilic molecules. In the selective enrichment of tryptic digest from human immunoglobulin G, glycopeptides with higher signal-to-noises were detected by Cys-Mal@SiO2. In addition, 1551 unique glycopeptides with 906 N-glycosylation sites from 466 different N-linked glycoproteins were identified from the proteins extracted from mouse liver after the enrichment with Cys-Mal@SiO2. In contrast, the numbers of identified glycopeptides, glycoproteins and N-glycosylation sites identified by Cys@SiO2 were 211, 67, 127 respectively less than by Cys-Mal@SiO2, and the corresponding numbers were 289, 76, 193 by Mal@SiO2. These results showed that the developed Cys-Mal@SiO2 is a promising affinity material for N-glycoproteomics research of real complex biological samples.

New C2 symmetric chiral stationary phases based on L-proline derivatives as chains
2017 Vol. 35 (7): 703-711 [Abstract] ( 23 ) [Full Text(HTML)] () [PDF 1330KB] ( 1 )    DOI: 10.3724/SP.J.1123.2017.02029

C2 symmetric chiral compounds overlap themselves when rotating with an axis of 180° with an axis and have important applications in chiral catalysis and chiral separation fields. A novel C2 symmetric stationary phase based on phenyl substituted L-proline derivatives was prepared and compared with the similar stationary phase based on mono-substituted brush-type stationary phase. The C2 symmetric stationary phase showed higher enantiodiscrimination capability than the mono-substituted stationary phase for 31 acidic, neutral and alkaline analytes. The influence of the substitution groups on the terminal phenyl moiety on enantioselectivity was investigated. In summary, the best separation capability was achieved by the stationary phase with none substitution on the endmost phenyl ring. An unusual thermodynamic behavior of the enantioseparation property was observed on the C2 symmetric stationary phase for some analytes, which showed the different separation mechanism comparing with the corresponding mono-substituted stationary phase. The appearance of this novel chiral stationary phase has an important significance in enriching the type of brush-type stationary phases and widening their applications.

Preparation and performance characterization of gold nanoparticles modified chiral capillary electrochromatography stationary phase
2017 Vol. 35 (7): 712-718 [Abstract] ( 17 ) [Full Text(HTML)] () [PDF 6314KB] ( 1 )    DOI: 10.3724/SP.J.1123.2017.03019

Gold nanoparticles (GNPs, 15 nm) were prepared and introduced to amino groups derived silica monolithic column. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) was immobilized via covalent modification method onto the carboxylic functionalized GNPs to afford chiral stationary phase (CSP) for enantioseparation. GNPs were well dispersed and successfully incorporated onto the columns with the contents as high as 17.18% by characterization method such as transmission electron microscopy (TEM), ultraviolet (UV)-visible absorption spectra and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The preparation conditions of the BSA modified CSP were optimized and 10% (v/v) 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) and 15 g/L BSA were selected as appropriate reaction conditions. The enantioseparation performance of the BSA modified CSP has been investigated by capillary electrochromatography (CEC). Enantiomers of tryptophan, ephedrine and atenolol were resolved, and the baseline separation of tryptophan was achieved. Meanwhile, the influences of pH value, buffer concentrations and applied voltages used on the chiral separation were studied, and the optimal separation conditions were 10 mmol/L phosphate buffer at pH 7.4 and 15 kV applied voltages. In comparison with the BSA modified CSP prepared by physical adsorption, the CSP prepared by covalent modification method had better separation results, and the analytes could be separated directly without pre-column derivatization. In addition, the prepared BSA modified CSP exhibited good run to run repeatability with relative standard deviations (RSDs) of the migration times and selectivity factors not more than 2.3% and 0.96%, respectively. This work offers a good thinking for modification with other proteins or other types of chiral selectors.

A high performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) method with fluorescence detection (FD) was established to simultaneously determine plasma indole and skatole. Plasma samples were pretreated by liquid-liquid extraction. Chromatographic separation was accomplished on a Shim-Pack VP-ODS column (150 mm×4. 6 mm, 4.6 μ m) using an isocratic mixture of 15 mmol/L sodium dihydrogen phosphate solution and methanol (40:60, v/v). The fluorescence excitation and emission wavelengths were 274 nm and 340 nm, respectively. The linear ranges were 2.22-88.89 μ g/L for indole and 1.11-44.44 μ g/L for skatole. The detection limits were 0.11 μ g/L and 0.06 μ g/L for indole and skatole, respectively. The recoveries were in the range of 95.5%-112.3% with the relative standard deviations less than 6.8%. The method was successfully applied to the analysis of plasma from healthy pregnant women (n=46) and pregnant women with hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection (n=29). The results showed that plasma indole and skatole levels were significantly different between two groups. In pregnant women with HBV infection, the concentrations of indolic compounds were positively associated with transaminase levels.

2017 Vol. 35 (7): 766-771 [Abstract] ( 18 ) [Full Text(HTML)] () [PDF 3686KB] ( 3 )    DOI: 10.3724/SP.J.1123.2017.02028

The conventional packed column gas chromatographic analysis of hydrogen isotopes has low column efficiency, broad peak and long retention time. In this work, a γ-Al2O3 with MnCl2 coated capillary packed column was tested at cryogenic temperature. The systematic column efficiency analysis and the hydrogen isotopes analytical technique research had been carried out. The results showed that, the γ-Al2O3 with MnCl2 coating could greatly improve the surface degree of order, pore structure and adsorption properties. Also the o-H2 peak and p-H2 peak were eluted in a single area. The γ-Al2O3 with MnCl2 coating was packed into a 0.53 mm inner diameter and 1.0 m long fused silica capillary column. It had a good linear relationship used this column with thermal conductivity detector (TCD) to detect the volume concentrations of hydrogen isotopes from 1 to 10 mL/L, and the relative error was less than 5% for low concentration sample testing. For H2, HD and D2, the retention times can be shortened to 39, 46 and 60 s, respectively. The limits of detection were reduced to 0.046, 0.067 and 0.072 mL/L, respectively. Compared with conventional packed column, capillary packed column had sharper peak form, higher separation degree of adjacent components, shorter retention time and lower detection limits. The above results indicate that the capillary packed column with TCD detector can be used for fast detection of low concentration of hydrogen isotopes and their online analysis.

A rapid and simple method was commonly used for the determination of microcystins by ultra performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS). The reliability, accuracy and sensitivity of LC-MS/MS determination were affected by the matrix effect because of the complex matrices in algal bloom samples. In this study, the matrix interference and matrix effect problems were effectively reduced or eliminated by diluting samples, optimizing gradient elution programs, and reducing injection volumes. The correlation coefficients (r2) of the seven microcystins were ≥ 0.99. The limits of detection and limits of quantification ranged from 0.064 μ g/L to 0.103 μ g/L and 0.213 μ g/L to 0.343 μ g/L, respectively. Algal bloom samples were determined by diluting 10 times and injecting 5 μ L of sample volume. The method provides some references for the determination of microcystins. It is of great significance for ensuring the safety of drinking water source.
