We report the use of an artificial neural network to analyze the fingerprint region of Fourier-transform infrared (ir) spectra of oligosaccharides for the presence of sulfate groups. This assay can rapidly and nondestructively detect the presence of sulfate in as little as 1 nmol (approximately 2 micrograms) of a glycoprotein-derived monosulfated decasaccharide. The neural network was trained to recognize the presence of sulfate groups by presenting it with 45 ir spectra of sulfated and nonsulfated mono- and oligosaccharides. No prior knowledge of the characteristic ir spectral features of a sulfate group was needed as input. The training process required between 3 and 10 h, while analysis of a spectrum with the trained neural network requires only 0.1 s.
