dcterms.abstractLow molecular mass (LMM) thiols are ubiquitous organosulfur peptides that play key roles in biogeochemical element cycling. These LMM thiols, found at low concentrations in the water column, are highly sensitive to oxidation and degradation processes which may lead to problems with detection and analysis. Natural water samples should be stored and handled appropriately to reduce thiol loss in the time period from sampling to analysis. Storage temperatures were investigated for optimal preservation of four thiols species. Thiol degradation varied between species and was generally slower in samples stored at 2808C and 48C compared to 2208C and 218C. Two natural freshwater matrices were tested, one from a fluvial lake subject to agricultural inputs and one from an oligotrophic pristine lake. After 6 d of storage at 2208C, the most affected thiol species was glutathione with a degradation rate (kD) of (3.0 6 0.5) 3 1023 h21 in the fluvial lake water and Lcysteine-L-glycine (CYS-GLY) with a kD of (3.8 6 0.8) 3 1023 h21 in the oligotrophic lake water. Argon purging of samples did not prevent thiol degradation or oxidation after storage for 7 d. Pre-concentration by freeze-drying techniques led to significant loss for every thiol species tested (up to 65% for cysteine). We recommend improving storage methods by using temperatures of 2808C or 48C. The use of correction factors to estimate initial thiol concentrations is possible but should be used with caution due to highly site-specific kD in natural waters.fr
