High-performance liquid chromatography was used in combination with infrared ion spectroscopy for the identification of positional isomers of hydroxy-atorvastatins, the primary metabolites of the drug atorvastatin. The results demonstrate the direct applicability of infrared ion spectroscopy in the field of drug metabolism and, more generally, its promising role in state-of-the-art analytical laboratories for the identification of small molecules buried in complex mixtures. In combination with chromatographic separation, infrared spectroscopy of mass selected ions provides a promising new route for the identification of the molecular structures of unknown m/z peaks in a mass spectrum. We demonstrate that currently existing experimental protocols allow the measurement of an IR spectrum from less than 10 ng of sample obtained in a collected HPLC fraction.
