b) Which cations are likely to form in an EIMS instrument during the fragmentation of the compound?
The three main components of any mass spectrometer includes
The role of the ionizer it to create gas phase ions that are analysed. This can be performed in a number of ways. Eelectron Ionization (EI) is a common technique, using high energy for fragmentation (70 eV).
Answer and Explanation: 1
The molecular formula for this structure is C19 H23 Cl O2.
