Mass spectrometry (AS and A2 analytical techniques)

This topic overlaps organic analysis for AS and A2. High resolution mass spectrometry can be used to determine the molecular formula of a compound from the accurate mass of the molecular ion. Understand that the fragmentation of a molecular ion: M+• → X+ + Y• gives rise to a characteristic relative abundance spectrum that may give information about the structure of
