End-group characterization of poly(styrene sulfonate sodium salt) by activated electron photo-detachment dissociation.

Abstract : Tandem mass spectrometry of poly(styrene sulfonate sodium salt) (PSS) was performed after activated electron photo-detachment dissociation (activated EPD). In this technique, doubly charged PSS oligomers were first produced in negative mode electrospray ionization, then oxidized into radical anions upon electron photo-detachment using a 220 nm laser wavelength, and further activated by collision. In contrast to the collision-induced dissociation (CID) of negatively charged PSS oligomers, which does not provide informative data with regard to the end-groups, activated-EPD is shown here to promote radical-induced dissociation reactions thanks to the oxidation of a sulfonate group upon laser irradiation. Major product ions generated after backbone bond cleavages contained one or the other chain terminations and could be accounted for by two main mechanisms. Moreover, each of the proposed dissociation reactions was shown to generate two distinct fragments, depending on the location of the oxidized monomer near one or the other chain terminal moieties. As a result, a combination of these two fragments allowed a straightforward mass characterization of each end-group.
