Abstract:

The mass spectra of 31 nitrate esters have been measured. The compounds fragment in a manner dependent on the number and nature ONO2 or OH of substituents present. Appearance potential measurements yield a value of 7.5 eV for the ionization potential of the nitro-oxymethyl group, CH2.O.NO2. Author
