gamma-Hydroxybutyric acid (GHB) and trans-gamma-hydroxycrotonic acid (HCA) together with their respective internal standards were derivatized to give the pentafluorobenzyl esters of the N-tert-butyldimethylsilyl derivatives. These compounds give, under electron capture conditions, very simple negative ion mass spectra. A very sensitive and specific assay for GHB and HCA in brain tissue (detection limit of about 5 pg per injection) using gas chromatography/negative ion mass spectrometry is described. The average levels measured in the whole brain were 1.10 +/- 0.18 nmol GHB/g wet weight and 0.18 +/- 0.02 nmol HCA/g wet weight.
