Fragmentation Pattern!


Recommended Posts

hi all,


I just wanted to ask what the fragmentation pattern of oxalic acid will be. Its not a homework question so I think its appropriate for this section. I think that the m/z = 17 corresponding to OH will be lost leaving the fragment C2HO+ behind. I can't think of the other fragment for it. Any idea folks!

OK I just checked and the chemputer is back up and running. It doesnt do fragmentation patterns but it DOES do isotopic patterns


here's the result for oxalic acid. Better late than never:


mass %

90 100.0 __________________________________________________

92 0.8

93 0.0
