    Cyclosporin A (CsA) rearranges to its isomer isocyclosporin A (isoCsA) upon acid hydrolysis and also during ionization in the ion source of the mass spectrometer. It has been reported that both compounds could not be differentiated by tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS) using atmospheric pressure ionization (API) sources and ambiguously differentiated by using other sources. In order to analyze these compounds which are common fungal metabolites, it is relevant to develop a simple method for their differentiation. CsA and isoCsA were analyzed by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS) with post-column addition of metal ion solutions in a quadrupole time-of-flight instrument equipped with an electrospray ionization (ESI) source. Mass spectra of CsA obtained upon post-column addition of solutions of Ca(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) showed complexes between cyclosporin and the metal, including [2CsA + Me](2+) and [CsA-H + Me](+). These complexes were not observed in the spectra of isoCsA. The same results were observed at different metal concentrations. Differentiation via metal complexation in positive ion mode LC/ESI-MS was performed to simultaneously distinguish CsA and its isomer isoCsA. Copyright © 2014 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
