On-line two-dimensional liquid chromatography hyphenated to mass spectrometry and ion mobility-mass spectrometry for the separation of carbohydrates from lignocellulosic biomass

Abstract : Lignocellulosic biomass is a promising resource of renewable energy. Its transformation to ethanol requires efficient pretreatment leading to complex liquid mixtures made of hundreds of oxygenated analytes. A large part of the released compounds belong to the carbohydrates family. To overcome the complexity of such samples, a comprehensive on-line two-dimensional reversed-phase liquid chromatography hyphenated to high-resolution mass spectrometry (RPLC × RPLC-HRMS) was dedicated to the separation of carbohydrates and more specifically oligomers coming from pretreated lignocellulosic biomass. The first part of this study consisted in the optimization of such hyphenation (i.e. selection of stationary phases, mobile phases, sampling time, etc.). Then, the analytical method was applied to an industrial aqueous biomass product coming from the sulfuric acid-based pretreatment of a wheat straw. Around 70 well-resolved chromatographic peaks corresponding to oligomers were obtained. Occupation of the separation space between each chromatographic dimension was estimated to 75%. In the last part of this study, the interest of ion mobility-mass spectrometry in addition to RPLC × RPLC was discussed. Some examples highlighted the additional separation that can bring ion mobility to RPLC × RPLC-IMS-HRMS method. Using this four-dimensional hyphenation method, each analyte was described by two retention times, the collisional cross section and the molecular formula allowing to reach a level of detail never seen for biomass sample compositions.
