The extension of mass spectrometry to high molecular weight biopolymers based upon electrospray ionization and the on-line combination with capillary electrophoresis is described. Electrospray ionization produces gas-phase intact multiply charged molecular ions of biomolecules from highly charged liquid droplets by a high electric field. For high molecular weight substances electrospray ionization results in a characteristic bell-shaped distribution of multiply charged ions, with each adjacent major peak in the spectrum differing by one charge. Multiply charged molecular ions of proteins with molecular weights greater than 130,000 have been observed with a quadr...
