Abstract:

A study of the M - methyl ion in the mass spectra of ring-deuterated tri- and tetra-mehtylbenzenes has confirmed the partial randomization of hydrogen and deuterium atoms observed by other workers. The results can be explained by postulating randomization of the peripheral entities, followed by several cycles of ring expansion and contraction, prior to fragmentation. Author
