Mass Spectrometry of Hexosamine Containing Oligosaccharides as Permethylated N-Trifluoroacetyl Derivatives
- 114 Downloads
Structural analysis of carbohydrates often includes mass spectrometry of derivatized monosaccharides or oligosaccharides. Mass spectrometry gives, combined with chemical analyses and NMR spectrometry, the complete structure. The major advantage with mass spectrometry is that structural information can be obtained on micro grams of material.
