In this study, different electrospray ionization mass spectrometric (ESI-MS) methods were utilized to analyze several pairs of taxane stereoisomers including paclitaxel and 7-epi-paclitaxel. Both ESI-MS and tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) techniques provided stereochemically dependent mass spectra in negative-ion mode, and all studied stereoisomers could be easily distinguished based on their characteristic ions or distinct fragmentation patterns. MS/MS experiments for several taxane analogues at various collision energies were performed to elucidate potential dissociation pathways. The gas-phase deprotonation potentials were also calculated to estimate the most thermodynamically favorable deprotonation site using DFT B3LYP/6-31G(d). The results of the theoretical studies agreed well with the fragmentation patterns of paclitaxel and 7-epi-paclitaxel observed from MS/MS experiments. In addition, it was found that liquid chromatography (LC)/ESI-MS was a useful and sensitive technique for assignment of C-7 taxane stereoisomers from realistic samples.
