Resumo

We have investigated gas-phase fragmentation reactions of protonated benzofuran neolignans (BNs) and dihydrobenzofuran neolignans (DBNs) by accurate-mass electrospray ionization tandem and multiple-stage (MSn) mass spectrometry combined with thermochemical data estimated by Computational Chemistry. Most of the protonated compounds fragment into product ions B ({[}M + H-MeOH](+)), C ({[}B-MeOH](+)), D ({[}C-CO](+)), and E ({[}D-CO](+)) upon collision-induced dissociation (CID). However, we identified a series of diagnostic ions and associated them with specific structural features. In the case of compounds displaying an acetoxy group at C-4, product ion C produces diagnostic ions K ({[}C-C2H2O](+)), L ({[}K-CO](+)), and P ({[}L-CO](+)). Formation of product ions H ({[}D-H2O](+)) and M ({[}H-CO](+)) is associated with the hydroxyl group at C-3 and C-3 `, whereas product ions N ({[}D-MeOH](+)) and O ({[}N-MeOH](+)) indicate a methoxyl group at the same positions. Finally, product ions F ({[}A-C2H2O](+)), Q ({[}A-C3H6O2](+)), I ({[}A-C6H6O](+)), and J ({[}I-MeOH](+)) for DBNs and product ion G ({[}B-C2H2O](+)) for BNs diagnose a saturated bond between C-7 ` and C-8 `. We used these structure-fragmentation relationships in combination with deuterium exchange experiments, MSn data, and Computational Chemistry to elucidate the gas-phase fragmentation pathways of these compounds. These results could help to elucidate DBN and BN metabolites in in vivo and in vitro studies on the basis of electrospray ionization ESI-CID-MS/MS data only. (AU)
