  Identification of the components of a sample of the drug by HPLC-MS high resolution
The components were identified by the exact mass of the corresponding protonated molecular ion [M + H] +.

  L-Carnitine Identification
Figure 1 shows the mass chromatogram and the mass spectrum obtained by analyzing a sample solution of a Hypercut sample using an HPLC-MS method reconstructed from the exact mass of L-carnitine [M + H] + - 162.11247.

A chromatographic peak with a retention time of 4.34 min corresponds to the compound to be detected. The experimentally recorded mass of 162.1125 deviation from the theoretical is less than 0.1 ppm. Measurement error of the exact mass and elemental composition of the ion (the difference between the measured mass and the calculated one) < 5 ppm, which indicates a reliable identification.
