HPTLC of water samples on silica gel LiChrospher in the AMD 2 with a 25-step gradient, starting in the isocratic mode with 5 steps acetonitrile – dichloromethane 1:1 for focusing, followed by 15 steps from acetonitrile – dichloromethane 1:1 to dichloromethane and then 5 steps from dichloromethane – n-hexane 4:1 to n-hexane. Final migration distance 80 mm. Detection under UV 254 nm, UV 366 nm and white light. Densitometric evaluation by absorbance measurement at 190, 200, 220, 240, 260, 280, and 300 nm. Target zones were eluted with the TLC-MS Interface offline with water – acetonitrile 1:1 and deuterium oxide – acetonitrile 1:1, respectively, each with an addition of 5 mmol/L ammonium acetate, at a flow rate of 0.2 mL/min using the oval elution head (4 x 2 mm) for analysis with a QTOF/MS. With the molecular formula information, different databases were searched and H/D exchange (replacing protons in the molecule by deuterium which leads to a mass shift in the ESI MS spectra) was used to reduce the quantity of possible structures.
