General description

MSTFA (N-Methyl-N-trimethylsilylfluoroacetamide) is an important trimethylsilyl reagent, and a commonly applied reagent since it is highly reactive towards a broad range of compound classes. GC-MS optimization studies reveal the use of this reagent either alone or in combination with 1% of trimethylchlorosilane as a catalyst for silylation of complex mixtures.[90] It has similar reactivity as BSA and BSTFA.

Application

MSTFA reagent may be used as a derivatizing agent in the following:
  • Analysis of estrogen steroids such as estrone (E1), 17α-ethinylestradiol (EE2)
[11], and trenbolone acetate metabolites, melengestrol[89] in environmental matrices using gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS).
  • Quantification of ibuprofen, naproxen, ketoprofen, and diclofenac in wastewater samples using gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS).
  • [88]

    Features and Benefits

    • Very volatile of TMS-acetamides.
    • More volatile than BSA or BSTFA but with similar silylation strength.
    • Useful in the analysis of volatile trace materials.
    • Used in the preparation of volatile and thermally stable derivatives for GC and MS analysis.
