In this study, we obtained for the first time the direct infrared multiple photon dissociation (IRMPD) spectra of ubiquitin ions in the range 2700–3750 cm−1. Ubiquitin ions with different charge states showed absorption in the two regions of 2940–3000 cm−1 and 3280–3400 cm−1. The increase of the charge state of ubiquitin ions broadened the absorption peak on the high-frequency side in the second region, indicating some hydrogen bonds were weakened due to Coulomb interaction. It is also found that the relative intensity of the absorption peak in the first region compared to the absorption peak in the second region increased with increasing charge state, making the IRMPD spectra charge-state resolved. Although it is usually reasonable to suggest the origin of the absorption in the range 2940–3000 cm−1 as the C-H bond stretching modes, the results show significantly reduced absorption after the deuteration of all labile hydrogen atoms. A possible explanation for this is that the coupling coefficients between the C-H vibrational mode and other selective modes decreased greatly after the deuteration, reducing the rate of energy redistribution and probability of consecutive IR absorption.
