These The MW of the metabolite is 1 amu higher than the analytes can be difficult to analyze using silica-based parent resulting in a 0.5 amu difference in m/z. The key HPLC columns, often requiring highly aqueous mobile structural difference resides with the metabolite having phases, extreme pH, and ion-pair reagents to achieve a terminal carboxylic acid and the parent having a adequate retention and peak shape. These conditions terminal amide. The chromatographic separation of the can compromise MS detection sensitivity due to parent and metabolite is paramount since the inefficient desolvation and ion suppression effects. metabolite produces the same MRM as the parent due to the resolution limits of the quadrupoles, and if not chromatographic problems by providing better resolved would lead to an overestimation of parent retention, improved peak shape, and surprisingly good concentrations for samples containing the metabolite. MS sensitivity using “wrong-way-round” ionization. Loratadine and descarboethoxyloratadine provide an example of sensitivity achieved with this ionization.

pg/mL with linearity demonstrated by an average been thought to occur in the liquid phase and hence to be highly correlation coefficient of 0.9990 for loratadine and The high pH mobile phase conditions significantly dependent on the mobile phase pH. Thus “wrong-way-round” 0.9984 for descarboethoxyloratadine. Inter-day QC improved the chromatographic resolution resulting in ionization conditions contradict the predicted ionization states based precision was 2.59-7.56% CV for loratadine and 2.72 – complete baseline separation. The high pH separation upon solution pH, and suggests other mechanisms of ionization are 5.46% CV for descarboethoxyloratadine. Inter-day QC can be attributed to an increase in polarity for the responsible for the sensitivities observed. Regardless of the accuracy QCs was 0.162 – 3.67%RE for loratadine and metabolite (carboxylic acid group ionized), while the mechanism, the use of “wrong-way-round” ionization has been 0.483 –3.04%RE for descarboethoxyloratadine of the polarity of the parent remains the same. demonstrated to be an effective approach to obtaining sensitivity and nominal values. LLOQ signal-to-noise was greater than improved chromatography for the compounds presented.
