Abstract

The unimolecular reactions of ions in a mass spectrometer are remarkably well correlated with both photochemical and thermochemical reactions of the corresponding neutrals. The reactivity correlations are seldom quantitative and exceptions to the correlation should be expected when heteroatoms or delocalization effects convey unusual stability to the ions in the mass spectrometer as compared to their neutral analogs. In spite of the special effects on ionic stability and the relatively large amount of energy that is available in 70 eV electron impact, it appears that mass spectra will be an increasingly useful guide to new photochemical and thermochemical reactions.
