The fragmentation patterns of hydrazide-conjugated and reductively aminated oligosaccharides, including lacto-N-fucopentaoses and lacto-N-difucohexaoses, produced on collisionally induced dissociation (CID) and ultraviolet photodissociation (UVPD) in a quadrupole ion trap are presented. The two derivatization methods generate different cross-ring cleavages on UVPD and CID. UVPD of hydrazide-conjugated oligosaccharides yield predominant (2, 4)A-type cross-ring cleavage ions. In contrast, UVPD of aminated oligosaccharides results mainly in (0, 1)A-type ions. Moreover, more extensive dual-cleavage pathways (i.e. internal fragment ions) were observed on UVPD.
