Abstract

The separation of long-chain polyprenols was successfully achieved using supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC). Each 100-mer greater component was separated using tetrahydrofuran as a mobile phase modifier. The molecular mass distributions derived from SFC analyses agreed with the results of matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS) analyses. The number-average molecular mass calculated by MALDI-TOF-MS data were also in accord with the results of quantitative 1H-NMR analysis of terminal groups. A combination of SFC and MALDI-TOF-MS analyses is a powerful tool for the elucidation of the complicated structures of natural polyprenols.
