Abstract

Low resolution mass spectra of pyrrolidides of isomeric octadecadienoic acids and other polyunsaturated straight chain fatty acids are presented and discussed. The spectra of the pyrrolidides contain mainly ions from the polar part of the molecule and give spectra that are specific for each isomer. The interpretation follows, in most cases, the rule developed for monounsaturated fatty acid pyrrolidides.
