Abstract: In this study, the carotenoid profile of the echinoderm Marthasterias glacialis L. was established using HPLC-DAD-APCI-MS/MS equipped with a C30 column. This approach rendered the identification of 20 compounds, eight of them reported for the first time in this marine organism. Differentiation of carotenoid isomers was also achieved.
Keywords: Marthasterias glacialis L.; carotenoids; isomers; echinoderm; HPLC-DAD-APCI-MS/MS
