A novel approach using a combination of capillary electrophoresis/mass spectrometry (CE/MS) and off-line Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance mass spectrometry (FTICR-MS) revealed the structural details of acidic constituents of atmospheric organic aerosol. Both techniques utilized electrospray ionization (ESI), a soft ionization method, to facilitate the analysis of complex mixtures of organic compounds. CE/ESI-MS using an UltraTrol LN-precoated capillary and acidic background electrolytes at different pH values (2.5 and 4.7) was used to differentiate between weak (carboxylic) and strong (sulfonic) organic acids. On the basis of the electrophoretic mobility, m/z constraints from CE/ESI(-)-MS, and elemental composition information retrieved from off-line FTICR-MS, a variety of aliphatic and aromatic carboxylic acids (CHO-bearing molecules), nitrogen-containing carboxylic acids (CHON-bearing molecules), organosulfates (CHOS-bearing molecules), and (nitrooxy)organosulfates (CHONS-bearing molecules) were tentatively identified in the Oasis-HLB-extracted urban PM(2.5) (particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of <2.5 μm). The chemical known/unknown structures of detected compounds were confirmed by the semiempirical Offord model (effective mobility linearly correlated to Z/M(2/3)). The majorities of the identified compounds are products of atmospheric reactions and are known contributors to secondary organic aerosols.
