After butylation and exposure to CID, butylformate (102 Da) is lost, because butylformate is a molecule (uncharged) rather than an ion, the product ion detected in MS2 is equal to the alfa-AA minus butylformate.
Extraction and butylation of amino acids and acylcarnitines during the standard procedure (2) led to butylation of EDTA in 4 positions.
Propionyl carnitine is now used as the primary biomarker, screened by tandem electrospray MS after derivatizing bloodspot methanol extracts by butylation (16).
Speciation of mercury in human whole blood by capillary gas chromatography with a microwave-induced plasma emission detector system following complexometric extraction and butylation.
Unfortunately, this method cannot be used as a substitute for the butylation method used in MS/MS newborn-screening programs, primarily because acylcarnitines are not fully derivatized at room temperature.
