Abstract: The linkage types 1→2, 1→3, and 1→4 of D-xylobioses can be distinguished based on the unimolecular decomposition spectra (MIKE) of the cluster [M + NH4]+ ions or by collision-induced dissociation (CID) mass spectra of [M + CH3NH3]+ ions of per-O-methylated compounds. The MIKE spectra of [M + NH4]+ and [M + CH3NH3]+ adducts allow the determination of linkage positions between the xylose residues in per-O-methylated o-xylotrioses. The branching point of the branched trisaccharides can be deduced from these mass spectra, too.
