dc.description.abstract In a previous report we showed that certain binary Ag(+)-amino acid complexes formed adduct ions by the attachment of a single water and methanol molecule when stored in an ion trap mass spectrometer: complexes with aliphatic amino acids and with 4-fluorophenylalanine formed the adduct ions whereas complexes with phenylalanine and tryptophan did not. In this study we compared the tendency of the Ag(+) complexes derived from phenylalanine, 4-fluorophenylalanine, 4-hydroxyphenylalanine (tyrosine), 4-bromophenylalanine, 4-nitrophenylalanine and aminocyclohexanepropionic acid to form water adducts when stored, without further activation, in the ion trap for times ranging from 1 to 500 ms. Because the donation of pi electron density to the Ag(+) ion is a likely determining factor in complex reactivity, our aim in the present study was to determine qualitatively the influence of para-position substituents on the aromatic ring on the formation of the water adducts. Our results show that the reactivity of the complexes is influenced significantly by the presence of the various substituents. Decreases in [M + Ag](+) ion abundance, and increases in adduct ion abundance, both measured as a function of storage time, follow the trend -NO(2) > -Br > -F > -OH > -H. The complex of Ag(+) with 4-nitrophenylalanine was nearly as reactive towards water as the Ag(+) complex with aminocyclohexanepropionic acid, the last being an amino acid devoid of pi character in the ring system. Collision induced dissociation of the [M + Ag](+) species derived from the amino acids produces, among other products, Ag(+) complexes with a para-substituted phenylacetaldehyde: complexes that also form adduct species when stored in the ion trap. The trends in adduct ion formation exhibited by the aldehyde-Ag(+) complex ions were similar to those observed for the precursor complexes of Ag(+) and the amino acids, confirming the influence of the ring substituent. en_US
