Can you give more information?

What is the temperature profile you are using on the GC/MS?
What column are you using? What model GC/MS, what detector,
what flow and carrier gas?

What chemical information can you give on the rapramycin?

Thanks.

I cant find rapramycin; do you mean "rapamycin".

If you do, I'm surprised that you expect a compound with 5x >C=O, 2x -OH groups and MW 914 (underivatized) to have sufficient volatility to be amenable to GC analysis.

Have you done a lit. search, or any homework, on this compound ?

You should be doing HPLC; many refs. out there.
