CovaChem's LCMS Heptafluorbutyric acid is well suited as a chromatography additive for use in HPLC and LCMS applications. Heptafluorobutyric acid (HFBA) is typically beneficial as a separations enhancer, and is a moderately strong ion pairing agent, which can be a very effective way of gaining good analyte separation and sharp peaks in HPLC applications. This moderately strong ion pairing effect can unfortunately reduce ionization efficiencies (compared to other acid additives, such as Formic acid (11202) and Acetic acid (11201). This reduction of ionization efficiency can often be overcome by the incorporation of the post-column addition a “TFA fix” reagent, such as a highly refined (2-(2-methoxyethoxy) ethanol (CovaChem 11207) or LCMS Grade Propionic acid (CovaChem 11207). Please feel free to contact our technical support for more information on this subject.

CovaChem's LCMS Grade HFBA comes in two convenient package sizes (10 x 1 mL Ampules and 25 mL bottles). The 1 mL Ampules of LCMS Grade HFBA are useful for quickly preparing 1 Liter bottles of 0.1% HFBA solutions in either water or other organic solvents.

  • BMPS Crosslinker

    3-Maleimidopropionic acid N-hydroxysuccinimide ester (BMPS) is a heterobifunctional crosslinker with a spacer length of 6.9 Å. BMPS contains an amine reactive, NHS ester, and a maleimide group which is reactive towards sulfhydryl functional groups.
  • BS3 Crosslinker

    Bis-sulfosuccinimidyl suberate (BS3) is an amino reactive, homobifunctional crosslinker. BS3 is water soluble and membrane impermeable.


    N,O-bis(trimethylsilyl)trifluoroacetamide (BSTFA) is a versatile silylation reagent used to form stable TMS derivatives that are volatile. BSTFA is used to derivatize carboxylic acids, phenols, steroids, amines, alcohols, and alkaloids.
  • DCC (Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide)

    N,N''-Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCC) is a zero length crosslinker. Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide is a coupling reagent used to couple carboxylic acids (COOH) to primary amines (-NH2).
  • DHB MALDI Matrix

    2,5-Dihydroxybenzoic acid (DHB) is a MALDI matrix used in the MALDI-MS of proteins, peptides, synthetic polymers, lipids and carbohydrates.
  • DryBlend MES Buffered Saline, pH 4.7

    MES buffered saline is ideally suited for protein cross linking reactions.
  • Heptafluorobutyric anhydride |HFAA | CAS 336-59-4 | HFBA Anhydride

    Heptaflurobutyric anhydride (HFAA) is an acylation reagent used to improve a compounds volatility and introduce fluorine atoms into an analyte compound for improved volatility.
  • Hexafluoroisopropanol (HFIP)

    Hexafluoroisopropanol (HFIP) is also called 1,1,1,3,3,3-Hexafluoro-2-propanol or HFIP. HFIP is an acylation reagent that is used to introduce fluorine atoms into a compound and improve volatility. This is useful for Gas Chromatography (GC) applications and GCMS applications.
