Abstract: High-field asymmetric waveform ion mobility spectrometry (FAIMS) was coupled to a high-resolution Orbitrap mass spectrometer (MS) with a heated electrospray ionization (HESI) source for the analysis of crude oil and respective saturate, aromatic, and resin fractions. Four classes of compounds N1, N1S1, O1S1, and O2S1 were investigated using FAIMS one-dimensional compensation field scans from −3 to 5 Td for the crude oil and FAIMS static scans from 0.5 to 2.5 Td with 0.5 Td increments for fractions. In all cases, the incorporation of FAIMS into the analysis resulted in an increased number of detected peaks for both the crude oil and fractions. The most significant change was noticed in the aromatic fraction, with an increase of 218% for N1 and up to 514% for the O2S1 class of compounds observed. In addition, pre-analytical fractionation combined with FAIMS–MS enabled a higher number of molecular features to be observed in comparison to whole oil for three classes of compounds N1, O1S1, and O2S1 by 19, 45, and 83%, respectively.
