Horai Shunsuke , Noriaki Yamauchi, Naraoka Hiroshi, Simultaneous total analysis of core and polar membrane lipids in archaea by HPLC/HRMS coupled with heated electrospray ionization, Rapid communication in mass spectrometry,, 33, 20, 1571-1577, 2019.10, Archaea have characteristic membrane lipids including diether and/or tetraether isoprenoidal core lipids with various polar head groups. Since the polar group is removed soon after the end of archaeal activity, the occurrence of core and polar lipids are regarded as dead and active signals, respectively. The core and polar lipids have generally been analyzed separately using atmospheric pressure chemical ionization (APCI) and electrospray ionization (ESI), respectively, coupled with mass spectrometry. Methods: In this study, simultaneous analysis of core and polar archaeal lipids have been examined using heated electrospray ionization (HESI) by high performance liquid chromatography/high resolution mass spectrometry (HPLC/HRMS). Results: Both core and intact polar lipids can be analyzed simultaneously by HESI with good sensitivity (sub ng to 100 ng) and separation using a semi-bore diol column by normal phase chromatography. The core lipids eluted firstly to separate archeaol, then GDGTs followed by the polar lipids with glycosides and glycophosphates. The relative GDGT composition is identical between HESI and APCI methods. Conclusions: The simultaneous analysis has a benefit to minimize sample amount and elution solvent as well as preparation work. The method can also be applied to a compound class fractionation for compound-specific carbon and hydrogen isotope analysis..

4. Noriaki YAMAUCHI, Preparation, and analysis of 2-hydroxyarchaeol isomeric mixture prior to the determination of stereochemistry, Reserches in Organic Geochemistry, 30, 33-36, 2014.12, A mixture of 2-hydroxyarchaeol isomers is chemically synthesized from commercially available racemic isophytol. In the gas chromatogram of TMS-derivative of the synthesized material, two peaks of equal intensity are observed, suggesting the occurrence of two stereoisomers at C-3 (hydroxylated carbon in the isoprenoid chain). The 13C NMR spectrum of the synthesized material is slightly different from that of 2-hydroxyarchaeol from microbial origin, which is also consistent with the occurrence of two isomers in the former. By contrast, natural 2-hydroxyarchaeol from microbes and sediments is inferred to consist of a single stereoisomer at C-3..
