The powerful combination of liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry ( MS) is often limited by matrix effects during ionization in the MS ion source. The use of fully isotope-substituted (C-13(15))-deoxynivalenol ((C-13(15))-DON) as an internal standard (IS) corrects matrix effects and improves the accuracy of analytical methods using mass spectrometry for the quantitative determination of the Fusarium mycotoxin deoxynivalenol (DON). The IS was characterized with respect to its chromatographic purity by liquid chromatography-ultraviolet light and its isotope distribution by time-of-flight mass spectrometry. Its low-energy collision-induced dissociation behaviour was compared with DON. Moreover, this work describes the successful application of (C-13(15))-DON as IS for the determination of DON in maize using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) electrospray (ESI) with tandem mass spectrometry. The results demonstrate that the IS can successfully correct for fluctuations during extraction and clean-up of the sample as well as the ionization of DON in the MS ion source. Random variations in ionization affect the IS in the same way as the analyte. Recoveries for DON in maize of 76% +/- 1.9% (external calibration) or 101% +/- 2.4% (internal calibration) were reached, respectively, after sample clean-up.
