General description

Ammonium acetate exists as a white crystal. It is prepared from acetic acid and ammonia by neutralization to pH 7.0. It is widely used in analytical chemistry, drugs and in textile dyeing.

Application

Ammonium acetate has been used to prepare eluents for UPLC-MS/MS and HPLC-MS/MS to compare the matrix effect of 9 pharmaceutical compounds in aqueous environmental samples. It has also been used as an additive to improve detection of phosphopeptides using MALDI-MS.

Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI MS) has been used successfully to detect phosphorylation sites in proteins. Applications may be limited by the low response of phosphopeptides compared to nonphosphorylated peptides in MALDI MS. The addition of ammonium salts to...

When developing an LC-MS/MS-method matrix effects are a major issue. The effect of co-eluting compounds arising from the matrix can result in signal enhancement or suppression. During method development much attention should be paid to diminishing matrix effects as much...
