LC-MS Plus NMR Building And Confirming Modern Molecular Libraries Bob Albrecht Protasis Corporation
LC / Mass Spectrometry Alone First choice for compound identification Very sensitive and fast, but… Not enough information to elucidate novel compounds Often ambiguous verification Ionization problems complicate identification
CapNMR From Purified Fractions Simple –No tricky SPE method or LC solvents –No stop-flow –No HPLC solvent suppression –No re-shimming Inexpensive No interferences = easier elucidation Best NMR Sensitivity vs. online LC- NMR or LC-SPE-NMR Largest fraction capacity vs. LC- SPE-NMR (384+)
Micro-plate Fraction Collection CapNMR is designed for analytical-scale separations.
MS isn’t enough for novel structure determination, but… CapNMR Has The Power MS + 1D Proton NMR in deuterated solvent is often enough for verification, but when it isn’t… CapNMR enables full structure elucidation of unknowns –13C, 15N, HSQC, HMBC, HMQC, COSY, TOCSY, ROESY, NOESY without changing probes! One-Minute NMR keeps the system running non-stop
Chromatographic Purification Strategies Time / Volume UV MS MS + UV
Time / Volume Directed Purification Fractions can contain 2+ compounds Less mass of purified material Many fractions Collects everything
UV-Directed Purification More pure compound Few impure fractions Too many worthless fractions No chromaphore, no fraction
MS-Directed Purification Pure fractions MS picks valuable fractions “Worthless” fractions may actually have value Poor ionization can waste valuable fractions Unknown mass range a problem
MS + UV Purification Poor ionization, fractions still collected No chromaphore, fractions still colleted Mass range can screen-out unlikely hits NMR on fractions with interesting MS spectra

Purification Scale UPLC™ (2.1x150mm 1.7 µ ) –< ~2 mg sample, plenty for MS (.1 µ g) + CapNMR (50 µ g) –Amazing chromatographic resolution –highest purity fractions –CapNMR on 2.5% of total fraction mass Analytical – (4.6x150mm 3-5 µ ) –< ~7mg sample –Good chromatographic resolution –CapNMR on 0.7% of total fraction mass Semi-Prep –50mg to grams of sample –Longer runs –Less resolution, more impure fractions –Typical for compound libraries –CapNMR on 0.1% of total fraction mass
Purification Scale-Down Saves Time and Money t ≈ $ ∆t + ∆$ = ∆productivity
Analytical Scale Chromatographic Resolution Matters There are three compounds under this peak. The MS sees them, but you will not get the purity you need for NMR elucidation.
But… Trade-Off With Sensitivity You still need to scale-down NMR to Elucidate the 0.1% fraction. A second analytical run resolves a poorly resolved semi-prep fraction.
