Experimental Procedure
In the evaporation of graphite in a high-frequency furnace (Huttinger IG 151
400, high-resistance version of a Hartley switch. 15 kW terminal power,
500 kHz) the following parameters were varied: a) graphite quality: purest
graphite (EK 966, Ringsdorff, Bonn), pyrolytic graphite (Ringsdorff, Bonn),
glassy carbon (Sigri, Meitingen); b) shape of the graphite bodies: tubes, cylinders, some slitted or laminated, some with cone-shaped cavities; c) thermal
isolation by one or two additional boron nitride tubes between the graphite
body and the water-cooled glass tube; d) water-cooling and inductor; e) type of
cooling gas (Ar, He) and the pressure of the cooling gas.
These investigations led to the following optimized procedure: The apparatus
(Fig. 1) was evacuated (lo-' hPa) and flushed a number of times and finally
heated in vacuum and then under a stream of inert gas (each heating lasted
20 min). The graphite body was heated quickly (over several min) to 2700 "C
and evaporated at this temperature under a weak helium stream (150 hPa). The
soot deposited on the inside of the PBN insulation tube never contained fullerenes. Most of the soot collected on the wall of the quartz tube and had a large
proportion of fullerene products. This soot was removed from the quartz tube
with a brush. The fullerenes were extracted from the soot with toluene yielding
a deep-red solution. The evaporation of 1 g of graphite in 10 min provided
80-120 mg of crude fullerenes.

[8] The temperature could be measured pyrometrically on the graphite surface
until soot formation started. Then the temperature was determined by
extrapolation based on the power data of the generator.
[9] The necessary inert conditions can be best obtained by the use of a watercooled quartz reaction tube, which is connected by a ground metal joint to
a gas-inlet valve and a valve to a vacuum pump. A balance must be made
between the power supplied to the inductor of the H F generator and the
power lost by the cooling water. The heat loss can be reduced substantially
by the use of a single- or double-walled insulation tube made of pyrolytic
boron nitride (PBN) which increases the temperature at the location ofthe
graphite body and reduces the temperature of the quartz surface. An additional effect of the PBN tube is seen in the creation of a larger hot reaction
zone (possible gas-phase deposition of fullerene on soot particles) and in
a chimney effect.

propargylic esters and organocopper(1) reagents.['"]

with decreasing flow rate. IS mass spectra of peptides or a
protein consist of a series of peaks arising from singly and
multiply charged, protonated molecular ions [ M + nH]"+.
For most peptides and proteins the multiplicity is related to
the number of basic lysine, arginine, and histidine residues in
addition to the N-terminal a-amino group.[', Each peak in
the spectrum constitutes an independent measure of the mass
of the parent species; from each pair of adjacent peaks the
molecular mass can be calculated.['I Therefore mass assignment can be made with greater precision and more confidence than is possible with singly charged ions. The effective
mass range of any analyzer is increased by a factor equal to
the number of charges on an ion. This opens the intriguing
possibility to determine molecular masses of biomolecules in
the kD range with quadrupole analyzers.
The increasing importance of synthetic lipopeptide vaccines for immunological screening['] and the lack of a simple
and reliable routine method for the characterization of these
compounds were the reasons for this study. The synthetic
vaccines investigated consist of the three-chain lipoamino
acid N-palmitoyl-S-[2,3-bis(palmitoyloxy)-propyl]-(R)-cysteine (tripalmitoyl-S-glycerylcysteine,
Pam,Cys-OH ; molecular mass 910.5 u)['l and selected partial sequences (B- and
T-cell epitopes containing 15-25 amino acids) of viral
proteins.['' We found IS-MS to be an extremely valuable
tool for characterizing these compounds and their precursors. As common aqueous solvent mixtures cannot be used
for the analysis of these highly lipophilic, water-insoluble
compounds, we evaluated the possibility of using organic
solvent mixtures for IS-MS.[''] Smaller lipopeptides of this
kind, for example, the amphiphilic lipohexapeptide
Pam,Cys-Ser-(Lys),["I or related lipoids["I we could analyze by field-desorption mass spectrometry and plasma desorption mass spectrometry. Matrix-assisted laser desorpt i ~ n [ ' has
~ ] also be proven to be a powerful method for the
mass determination of large lipophilic compounds.
Lipopeptide vaccines"] are usually built up by solid-phase
peptide synthesis (Merrifield synthesis). The lipoamino acid
Pam,Cys-OH is attached to the antigenic determinant either
N-terminally in the last coupling step"' or C-terminally
beginning the synthesis with Pam,Cys-Lys(Fmoc)-OH
(Fmoc = 9-fluorenylmethoxycarbonyl) as a resin-bound
building block.[141A third possibility is to introduce 0,O'dipalmitoyl-S-glyceryl-cysteinewithin a peptide chain using
an N,-Fmoc protected derivative." Thus, the partial sequence 135-154 of 0 , K foot-and-mouth disease virus
VP 1 ['I, an icosapeptide, was built up on an acid-labile resin
using FmocltBu strategy. This epitope contains three
arginine residues, which were introduced by using Fmoc-Ar-
