AbstractWe have investigated benchmark laser desorption/ionization mass spectroscopy processes assisted by platinum nanoparticles (NALDI-MS). The technique has been applied to the detection of a synthetic polymer (polyethylenglycol PEG600) and a peptide (Angiotensin I). Platinum stands out among the noble metals as a NALDI active substrate because of its low heat conductivity and high melting temperature [1]. It has been shown that stable platinum nanoparticles suitable for NALDI can be prepared by laser ablation in water solutions [2,3]. In this work, we use aqueous suspensions of platinum colloidal nanoparticles of varying size, shape, cristallinity and polydispersity produced in solution by ablation with a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser at several laser wavelengths (1064, 532 and 266 nm) and stabilizing agents, such as PEG, PVA, PVP and citrate. NALDI-MS measurements in positive-ion mode were performed in a commercial time-of-flight mass spectrometer (UltraeXtreme, Bruker), employing 355 nm nanosecond laser pulses from a Nd:YAG laser at a 1 kHz repetition rate. Good sensitivity is obtained for the detection of both PEG600 and Angiotensin I. For PEG600 the LDI spectra display adducts associated with the cationization by Na+ or K+, whereas for the Angiotensin the protonated peptide is detected along with the cationized adducts, with relative intensities depending on the surfactant employed. The best overall NALDI-MS performance was found for nanoparticles of average size 4 nm, produced with 532 nm laser pulses in the presence of sodium citrate as surfactant.
