Fragmentation mechanisms in mass spectrometry

Madeleine Campbell, O. Runquist

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    The commonly encountered radical cation representation, in which the charge is not localized, may confuse students. The alternative teaching conventions suggested in this paper have a distinct advantage in that electronic "book-keeping" is possible, and mechanisms can be illustrated as natural extensions of previously-encountered cation and radical mechanisms.
