    ABSTRACT: The application of MS-MS for the analysis of long-chain carboxylic acids and their esters has proved enormously successful but expensive. It is discussed mainly on basis of results obtained with different instruments with lesser attention to principles of the method, which have been adequately reviewed elsewhere. The use of electrospray ionization (ESI) has greatly increased the sensitivity of the method and has permitted assay of total lipid extracts. The combination of HPLC with electrospray and single quadrupole mass spectrometry, LC-ESI-CID-MS, rivals the triple quadrupole MS-MS application in many instances at considerably lower cost. However, LC-ESI-MS-MS remains the most desirable system at the present time for lipid ester analyses.

    ABSTRACT: Modification of the Carlo-Erba cold on-column injector for (automated) analysis of high molecular compounds at high oven temperature is described. The secondary cooling tube of the cold on-column injector is replaced by a lengthened tube through which a high air flow is directed. The injection site is maintained at 65–70 °C while the oven is at high temperature (≷ 300 °C). For automated injection, a short deactivated precolumn of 22 to 30 cm × 0.53 mm i.d. is coupled to the analytical column via a butt connector with make-up gas supply. For a triglyceride mixture, automatically injected at 300 °C, the mean % deviation for all peak areas was 1.8% and the mean % deviation for all retention times was 0.09 % for five consecutive runs.

    ABSTRACT: The changes of mono- and oligosaccharides, carboxylic acids, purine alkaloids, and fatty acid composition, and of aspartic endoproteinase activity, were analyzed during seed development in two varieties of cacao (Theobroma cacao). The majority of the components examined either decreased or accumulated steadily in concentration during the second half of bean development. Sucrose is the major sugar in the mature embryo, whereas fructose and glucose are at higher concentrations in the endosperm tissue. Considerable amounts of malate are found in the endosperm, whereas citrate is the dominant carboxylic acid in the embryo. A major change in the fatty acid composition occurs in the young embryo when the proportion of stearic acid increases rapidly at the expense of linoleic acid, which is reduced from about 18 to 3%. Theobromine is the dominant purine alkaloid (ca. 80%), and caffeine appears only toward the end of seed maturity. Aspartic endoproteinase activity increases rapidly during embryo expansion, reaching a maximal activity before final maturity. The results are discussed in conjunction with physiological changes in developing seeds, and the potential contributions of the compounds analyzed for cocoa quality.
