|Abstract:||A sildenafil analogue was detected in a functional coffee sample labelled to have male sexual performance enhancement effects. This analogue was isolated and purified by flash chromatography and preparative high-performance liquid chromatography. Its structure was elucidated using high-resolution mass spectrometry; electrospray ionizationtandem mass spectrometry; and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, ultraviolet spectroscopy, and infrared spectroscopy. Compared with sildenafil, instead of an Nmethylpiperazinyl moiety, ring opening of the piperazine ring with the loss of a carbon atom resulted in a substituted benzenesulfonamide. The chemical name of this analogue is N-[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]-4-ethoxy-3- (1-methyl-7-oxo-3-propyl-6,7-dihydro-1H- pyrazolo[4,3- d]pyrimidin-5-yl)benzenesulfonamide. It is named descarbonsildenafil because it has one less carbon atom when compared with sildenafil. © Springer-Verlag 2012.|
