Anal Bioanal Chem 2021 Jul 20. Epub 2021 Jul 20.

Institute of Geology and Palaeontology - Applied Geology, University of Münster, Corrensstraße 24, 48149, Münster, Germany.

Due to growing concern about organic micropollutants and their transformation products (TP) in surface and drinking water, reliable identification of unknowns is required. Here, we demonstrate how non-target liquid chromatography (LC)-high-resolution tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) and the feature-based molecular networking (FBMN) workflow provide insight into water samples from four riverbank filtration sites with different redox conditions. First, FBMN prioritized and connected drinking water relevant and seasonally dependent compounds based on a modification-aware MS/MS cosine similarity. Read More

Rapid organocatalytic chirality analysis of amines, amino acids, alcohols, amino alcohols and diols with achiral iso(thio)cyanate probes.

Chem Sci 2021 Jul 25;12(25):8784-8790. Epub 2021 May 25.

Department of Chemistry, Georgetown University Washington DC 20057 USA

The widespread occurrence and significance of chiral compounds does not only require new methods for their enantioselective synthesis but also efficient tools that allow rapid determination of the absolute configuration, enantiomeric composition and overall concentration of nonracemic mixtures. Although chiral analysis is a frequently encountered challenge in the chemical, environmental, materials and health sciences it is typically addressed with slow and laborious chromatographic or NMR spectroscopic techniques. We now show with almost 40 analytes representing 5 different compound classes, including mono-alcohols which are particularly challenging sensing targets, that this task can be solved very quickly by chiroptical sensing with a single, readily available arylisocyanate probe.
