Liquid Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry

We show a couple of examples of how LCMS allows us to analyze intact polar lipids below:

comparative analyses of a BHP through derivitization and through LCMS. LCMS retains the functionality of the original compound.


a phospholipid may be analysed as an intact lipid with LCMS, whereas with saponification it must be examined as its separate FAMEs.
