A Workflow for the Identification of Mycotoxin Metabolites Using Liquid Chromatography–Ion Mobility-Mass Spectrometry
The structural identification of phase-I and phase-II metabolites of mycotoxins is a difficult task, mostly due to the lack of standards and because of the large number of isomeric forms. Here, we describe the use of ion mobility-mass spectrometry to analyze cereal extracts and how structural information on newly discovered mycotoxins metabolites could be obtained.
