Various plant polysaccharide derived mono- and oligosaccharides were derivatized with the fluorescent 9-aminopyrene-1,4,6-trisulfonate (APTS) and subjected to capillary electrophoresis (CE) in combination with laser induced fluorescence (LIF) detection. CE-LIF was suitable for mol-based quantification of various APTS-monosaccharides. CE-LIF of APTS-oligosaccharides showed high resolutions, while analysis times were at maximum 15 min. The coupling of CE to electrospray-iontrap mass spectrometery (MS) with online UV detection showed to be a powerful technique in the identification of APTS-oligosaccharides. For the first time, various APTS-xylo-oligosaccharides, having either no, O-acetyl, arabinosyl or xylosyl substitutions at varying positions, were identified by using CE-LIF and CE-MSn.
