Abstract

For the first time, the characteristic fragment(m/z 85) of protonated melamine generated in MS/MS spectra recorded using surface desorption atmospheric pressure chemical ionization mass spectrometry has been employed as a molecular probe to image melamine distributed in boiled eggs. With a special resolution of 0.06 mm2, the imaging obtained in x, y dimensions visualized extremely uneven distribution of melamine in the egg samples(ca. 1244 mm2), and most melamine(99. 8%) was distributed in egg white region. The ratio of the unit sampling area to the imaging area achieved was less than 50 ppm.
