Heterocycles as Structural Units in New Optical Brighteners
By Alfons Dorlars, Carl-Wolfgang Schellhammer, and Joseph Schroeder['I
Dedicated to Professor Siegjiried Petersen on the occasion of his 65th birthday
Optical brighteners are used in detergents, textiles, paper, plastics, and paints. Most optical
brighteners contain heterocycles such as coumarins, 2-pyrazolines, naphthalimides, pyrazoles,
triazoles, oxadiazoles, and triazines. In this article the syntheses, properties, and applications
of new optical brighteners are described with references to patent literature.
1. Introduction
Optical brighteners are colorless fluorescent dyestuffs that
absorb in the near ultraviolet (3500-3900A) and fluoresce
in the violet to blue region of the spectrum (4250-4450A).
Thus, by their use the reflection deficit of yellowish substrates
can be compensated and even overcompensated. The first
review of organic fluorescent dyes and their industrial use
in this Journal appeared 26 years ago['I, and since then new
substrates that require brightening have come into use; the
increased demands on fastness to light and to other agents
in use have, however, been satisfied by research in the laboratories of the dyestuffs industry, and the results are recorded
in patent applications. Reference should also be made to
some reviews of the whole
Except for some linearly extended, conjugated carbocyclic
systems such as derivatives of distyrylbenzene and 4,4'-distyrylbiphenyl, the optical brighteners that are used industrially
contain heterocycles. The heterocycle may play either of two
roles: the basic skeleton of the brightener may be a heterocycle,
for example in coumarin derivatives or 2-pyrazoline derivatives, or alternatively, the fluorescence of a conjugated system
may be increased and shifted bathochromically. We can thus
distinguish between heterocycles themselvescapable of fluorescence and heterocycles attached to conjugated systems that
can fluoresce. Admittedly there is an overlap in many cases,
but nevertheless we shall use this classification in the present
attempt to review, from the patent literature, the heterocycles
used as structural units in the new optical brighteners.
2. Synthesis of Heterocyclic Systems Themselves Cap
able of Fluorescence
2.1. Synthesis of Coumarins and 2-Quinolones
One of the oldest optical brighteners based on coumarin
is 7-(diethylamino)-4-methylcoumarin( f ), which is prepared
by the Pechmann coumarin synthesis from m-(diethylamino)phenol and ethyl acetoacetate.
Numerous variants of compounds (1) that carry hydrogen
or a methanesulfonyl or butanesulfonyl group in place of
the N-ethyl group are also useful brightener~'~!Work on
compounds of type ( 1 ) has utilized the observation that coumarin derivatives fluoresce strongly when an electron-donor
substituent is present in position 7c4! Coumarins also fluoresce
strongly if C-5 and C-6 are annelated to benzo rings as in
( L ? ~ ) - ( L ? C ) ~ ~ ~or
, if a 2-thienyl (3)I6l or 2-benzoxazolyl group
(4)"' is present in position 3. The fluorescence of 3,4-, 6,7-,
and 7,8-benzo-annelated coumarins is much weaker than
that of compounds of type (2).
More powerful brightening effects or better light fastness
is obtained with derivatives of 3-phenyl- or 3-heterocyclyl-coumarins. These compounds also must have electrondonor substituents if they are to fluoresce optimally; this condition
is satisfied by alkoxy, alkylthio[121,or acylamino groups or
heteroaryl containing an excess of n-electrons; these may be
in the p-position of the 3-phenyl ring or in the 7-position
of the coumarin.
7-Alkoxy-3-phenylcoumarins(6) are prepared by the Perkin-Oglialoro synthesis[' 31 from resorcylaldehyde ( 5 ) and
sodium phenylacetate with subsequent hydrolysis of the intermediate product by alkylation of the hydroxyl

Since 4-nitro- and 4-(acetylamino)salicylaldehyde are not

The synthesis of (24) can be simplified by adding benzyl

The fluorescence maxima of 7-amino-3-phenyl-2quinolone
derivatives are shifted hypsochromically from those of the
corresponding coumarinderivatives; for this reason 7-(dimethylamino)-1 -ethyl-3-phenyl-2-quinolone,
which is prepared by
methylating the 7-amino compound with formaldehyde/hydrogen, is an optical brightener'341,whereas 7-(dimethylamino)3-phenylcoumarin is too highly colored.

2.2. Syntheses of ZPyrazolines
The industrially useful brighteners in this class of compounds are derived from 1,3diphenyl-2-pyrazoline,which is
a fluorescing system in its own right. Some authors describe
this grouping as a chromophore:

The 2pz electrons of the N-I atom are then considered to
interact with the n-electrons of the C=N
workers believe that the strong interaction of 1,3-diphenyl-2pyraz~line[~']
with light is better described by assuming intramolecular charge transfer (ICT)[36J
in the directions indicated
by the arrows in the formula. There have been studies of
the influence of structure, solvent, and temperature on this
Industrial syntheses of 1,3-dipheny1-2-pyrazolines,e.g. (30)
and (31) employ phenyl vinyl or P-chloroethyl phenyl ketone,
or alternatively Mannich bases from acetophenoneand formaldehyde with secondary amines and substituted phenylhydrazines, as the starting materials.

presence of an alkali metal alk~xide[~l!
Benzodifurans can also be useful brighteners, an example
being (52)[921which is formed in a redox reaction of methyl
pphenylbenzoylacetate with p-benzoquinone.
Utilizable fluorescence is also shown by derivatives of benzothiophene e. g. 5-methyl-2-phenylbenzothiophene

Whereas nowadays pyrroles do not play any part as substituents of fluorescing conjugated systems, the I-pyrazolyl group
is a constituent of some important optical brighteners. I-Pyrazolyl derivatives are obtained by treating P-dicarbonyl compounds with the relevant substituted hydrazines. For example,
the 5-methyl-I-pyrazolyl derivative (65) is obtained by reaction of acetoacetaldehyde with 7-hydrazino-3-phenylcoumarin
( M ) , which is itself obtained by diazotization of ( 1 4 ) and
subsequent reduction by sulfite[103!

of 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (60) and of 2,5-thiophenedicarboxylic acid (63). Compound (60) can be prepared in 50 %

Since, however, compounds containing a 5-substituted 1pyrazolyl group have less advantageous properties than the
3-substituted analogs, special techniques must be applied to
provide the compounds containing 3-substituted 1-pyrazolyl
groups. If the aldehyde is replaced by its dimethyl acetal
and the mineral acid used for cleavage of the acetal grouping
is added only after the formation of the ketone hydrazone
(66), then the 3-methyl-I-pyrazolyl derivative (67) is
obtained ' 3!
Analogous reactions are undergone by 7-hydrazinocoumarins containing heterocycles such as 1,2,4-triazole or 4chloropyrazole in position 3 ['04], or N-alkyl-4-hydrazinonaphthalimide~['~~!
In place of oxoaldehyde acetals, alkyl or aryl
3-chlorovinyl ketones may also be used. To synthesize the
3-substituted 1-pyrazolyl derivative from 2-methoxyvinyl
phenyl ketone (68), the hydrazine used is first acylated in
the P-position and thus the desired compound (70) is obtained
by way of the intermediate (69)" 06!

The known synthesis of 1,2,3-triazol-l-y1 compounds by
the addition of azides to alkines has been mastered also by
industry, so that we meet such compounds among stilbene
as well as among coumarin derivatives. The intermediate (83)
needed for the manufacture of the bis(triazoly1) brightener
( 8 4 ) is obtained from the 4-amino4-nitro-2,2'-stilbenedisulfonic acid (81) that is readily available industrially by diazotization and coupling with toluenesulfonamide; the azide (82)
then obtained with loss of toluenesulfinic acid[112a1
can be
converted into (83) by acetylene under slight pressure" l2].
The compound (86) is obtained similarly from 7-azido-34~to1yl)coumarin (85) by the addition of acetylene, and with
dimethyl sulfate it gives the quaternary derivative (87)['131.
3.4. Conjugated Systems Containing 1,Z,STriazol-Z-yl~roups
The great stability of the 1,2,3-triazol-2-y1 group bonded
by its central N atom has long been known from the chemistry
of dyes for the cases of annelated triazolyl groups and in
particular of benzo- and naphtho[ 1,2-d]triazoles. Attempts
to achieve stability to hypochlorite bleaching solutions and
improved light fastness by incorporating the N-atoms of flavic
acid into the heteroaromatic system of the naphthotriazole
have proved successful. The first representative of this class
of compounds, (88), is prepared by coupling diazotized flavic

The marked greenish tint of (88) can be shifted in the
direction of neutral white by dispensing with one of the naphthotriazole groups, although this is at the cost of efficiency.
The compound ( 8 9 ) is stable to hypochlorite bleaching liquors
and peroxides; it is suitable for whitening cellulose and polyamide from washing baths['l5I.
The cyano compound ( 9 0 ) is used as polyester brightener['l6].(89) and (90) are prepared analogously to (88)[L16a1.
The patent literature contains numerous variants of the compound types (88)-(90)r"6b1, e. g. (84). Moreover, the
benzobis(triazo1e)stilbene compounds (91) have been developed as polyester brighteners" ''I.
These compounds (91 ) are prepared by coupling 5-amino-2(p-toly1)-benzotriazolewith diazotized p-toluidine or with the
diazo component corresponding to the group R, and are
then cyclized, e. g. to ( 9 2 ) . The methyl groups can be condensed
with benzylideneaniline in dimethylformamide in the presence
of strong bases (KOH), yielding the distilbenyl compound
("anil synthesis")" 81.
While ( 9 6 ) confers white tints on cotton and polyamides

light-fast and resistant to hypochlorite bleach liquors['231.
The tetrasulfonic acid (98) produced by subsequent sulfonation of ( 9 7 ) is equally stable and is so far the only water-soluble
stilbene brightener that can be used in a reactant resin form
without the necessity of wasteful after-washing. Compounds
(99), (loo), and (101) are good brighteners for polyamides.
Sulfonamides derived from disulfonic acids of type ( 9 7 ) are
suitable for brightening polyester materials to be spun['26a1.

In the coumarin series too this procedure leads to effective
brighteners. The naphtho[l,2-d]triazole compounds (93)" 19]
and (94)[1201obtainable from the amines (10) and ( 1 4 ) ,
respectively, are polyester brighteners, while the compound

The monocyclic 1,2,3-triazol-2-yl group is very stable and
capable of varied substitution and it brings new possibilities
into the chemistry and technology of optical brighteners. This
can be illustrated by some examples from the stilbene series
(Table 3).

Four configurations can. in general. be considered for r-hydroxyimino hydrazones such as (102) : syn- and anti-hydrazones can take part in triazole ring closure, especially the syn-hydrazone anti-oxime. For this synthesis the hydroxyimino group
is acylated, giving ( I O S ) , e. g. by acetic anhydride, urea" 301,
or isocyanates" I ] ; after nucleofugal departure of the acyloxy
anion an intermediate (105) is obtained, which can stabilize
itself in several ways, in which a part is played by the possible
removal of the N-proton that is capable of hydrogen-bridge
The products may be not only the desired triazoles by
reaction (a) but also, from anti-hydrazones and/or aromatic
R2, the acylhydrazines by reaction (b) (Beckmann cleavage),
or, further, by reaction (c) when R Z= H, the hydrazonoglyoxylonitriles and subsequent products therefrom. For high yields
of triazole the reaction conditions must thus be carefully
optimized in each individual case.
The compound (101) is advantageously obtained by oxidative cyclization of the coupling product of diazotized flavic
acid with 0-aminocinnamic ester (104), R I =C,H5,
R2=COOC2H5[126!In some cases higher yields of triazole
are obtained more easily if the hydroxyimino hydrazones
( 1 0 2 ) are first cyclized with dehydrogenation to triazole N I oxides (106)1'321,e. g. by copper(I1) salts, and these oxides
are then reduced to the triazoles (107).
In the coumarin series combination with 1,2,3-triazol-2-yl
groups leads to products that are particularly suitable as
polyester brighteners. A selection of characteristic examples
is given in Table 4.

Treatment of the reactive triazole N1-oxides (106) with

and, when R2=CH,, to acetoxymethyl derivatives (1
An example of an optical brightener of type ( 108) is compound
( 1 1l ) , which is obtained by condensation of 4-hydrazino-2stilbenecarbonitrile with cr-(hydroxyimino)benzylideneacetone, dehydrogenation of the hydroxyimino hydrazone to the

As examples of long-chain monotriazolylstilbenes may be
cited the cotton brightener ( I 12)[1361and the spun-polyester
brightener ( I 14). Whereas ( I 12) can be prepared, analogously
to (97), from 4-hydrazino-4'-phenyI-2-stilbenesulfonicacid,
( I 34)1136b3
is obtained from thedialdehyde ( I 13) by carbonyl
olefination[' 36c!
( 1 13) and numerous substituted derivatives thereof can
be prepared in good yields by Rosenmund reduction of dicarboxylic acid chlorides.
Compounds ( I 15)-(121) are prepared from 3-phenyior 3-heterocyclyl-7-hydrazinocoumarinsby condensation with
a-hydroxyimino-propiophenone, -benzylideneacetone, -pphenylpropiophenone or -diethy1 ketone, with subsequent cyclodehydration of the resultant hydroxyimino hydrazones.
N a p h t h a b i d e derivatives carrying a monocyclic 1,2,3-triazol+
2-yl group in position 4 have also been described as polyester
brighteners. Since this class of compounds already fluoresces
at rather long wavelengths, bathochromic substituents should
not be introduced into the triazole nucleus. The best results
are obtained with (122a)['431or, even better, (122b)['441,
where R ' is ethyl or butyl in both cases.
The starting material for these compounds is N-ethyl- or
N-butyl&hydrazinonaphthalimide, which is condensed with
hydroxyiminoacetone to yield the a-hydroxyimino hydrazone
(102). For the preparation of (122a) the next step is dehydrogenation to the N-oxide (106), which then yields the halotriazoie (108) as described above. (122b) can also be obtained
in the usual way. However, if the readily accessible anti-acetoximino-acetone (123) is used as the starting material, (I22b)
is formed in 90% yield in a one-stage reaction['4481;but
it should be mentioned that this procedure cannot be applied
to hydroxyiminoaryl ketones.

linked to a 1,2,3-triazolyl group attached through its atom
C-4, yielding compounds of type (124).

However, brighteners of this type, e.g. (125)11461 and

have not become important, because in the first
place their effect is somewhat smaller than that of the 1,2,3-triazol-2-yl analogs (97) and ( 115) and, secondly, they are considerably harder to prepare.

Although so far conjugated systems containing monocyclic
2-imidazolyl, 2-oxazolylfi'I, or 2-thiazolyl groups have been
of no industrial importance, numerous optical brighteners
arederived from the benzo- or naphtho-annelated derivatives.
More than 600 patents record such compounds, their main
use being to provide white shades on synthetic fibers and
plastics. Examples are collected in Table 5.

Many carbocyclic or heterocyclic systems that, like benzoxazole, themselves fluoresce weakly, are converted on combination with a 2-benzoxazolyl group into compounds showing
outstanding fluorescence. There the benzoxazole produces not
only an extension of the resonating system but also a lowering
of the Sm*level below the usual lowest Tnp* level of double
bond systems with a distinct decrease in the life of the excited
singlet. The combination of these two effects leads to fluorescence[' 69!
3.7.1. Aqueous Acids as Cyclizing Agents
Aqueous acids can be used only in the synthesis of 2-benzimidazolyl derivatives. Good yields are obtained in, e. g., the
reaction of o-phenylenediamines with carboxylic acids in 40 %
sulfuric acid['521or in 85 % phosphoric
i 132)
It is also possible to treat a carbonyl chloride (produced
in some cases in ~ i t u [ " ~ ]with
the amine component, and
then to cyclize the resulting amide (after isolation, if necessary)
by addition of the catalyst[154*1 5 8 - 16'* 173! Compounds
(Z33)-(Z35) are examples of this (for solvents see references[ 1 7 3.119 - 1831)

3.7.2. Polyphosphoric Acid (PPA) as Cyclizing Agent
PPA containing 85 % of P,05 is a n efficient cyclizing agent
for the synthesis of benzazoles. By means of PPA, monoor dicarboxylic acids and their amides, esters, or nitriles can
beconvertedinto benzazolessuchas (130)[1721,and(131)r1741
on treatment with o-phenylenediamines, o-aminophenols, oaminophenyl ethers or o-aminothiophenols at 100-200 "C
with exclusion ofair[lsl*158. l 7 l * 72! The limits of this reaction
are set by the sensitivity of the reactants to PPA.
A particularly elegant variation is to treat equimolar
amounts of carboxylic acid and amine components by stepwise
heating in solvents while the water produced is distilled
off[179. 1841.
3.7.4. Oxidative Ring Closures
Schiff bases from o-aminophenols or o-phenylenediamines
and aromatic aldehydes can be oxidized to benzoxazoles and
benzimidazoles, respectively, in inert solvents by means of
chloranil[1641,sodium nitrite in glacial acetic acid[Is5], potassium permanganate['861, or lead(1v) salts[187!
R = H , CH3, R ' = H, CzH,
3.7s.3. Boric Acid, Toluenesulfonic Acid, or Zinc Chloride as
Cyclizing Agent
Problems of corrosion can be decreased by replacing the
PPA for removal of water with boric acid, toluenesulfonic
acid, or zinc chloride in an inert solvent as the catalyst. Ring
closure to compounds of type (132) occurs as formulated.
In practice, equimolar amounts of the carboxylic acid or
its ester for example, can be melted together with the amine
component at 180-200°C with exclusion of air[162.
This oxidative ring closure succeeds even with N-arylamidinium salts (136), although with only moderate yields.

3.8. Conjugated Systems Containing 1,3,4-Oxadiazole-l,2,4Oxadiazole, or 1,3,4-Thiadiazole Derivatives
1.3,4-Oxadiazole derivatives are often mentioned in the
patent literature as components in optical brighteners. 1,3,4Oxadiazoles (141) are obtained on removing water from diacylhydrazines e. g. with thionyl chloride, oleum, or phosphorus oxychloride.
Treatment of diacylhydrazines with P,S, or P,S5 yields
1,3,4-thiadiazolederivatives. Table 6 shows a selection of 1,3,4oxadiazoles.

While simple acylation products of flavic acid, e. 9. those
given by substituted benzoyl chlorides[2o6]or phenyl iso~ y a n a t e [ ~ ~have
’ ~ , lost their importance, products acylated
by the s-triazino group (144/[2081
have become dominant. The
almost unlimited number of combinations of the substituents
R’-R4 permits satisfaction of almost any demand over a very
broad spectrum of industrial uses. Table 7 gives a collection of
characteristic compounds of this class.
Triazinylflavic acid derivatives ( 1 4 4 ) are prepared industrially by treating 2,4,6-trichloro-1,3,5-triazine
(cyanuric chloride) with flavic acid and any desired amine, ammonia, or
alcohol-in the case of the amines in an aqueous medium

strength between the chlorine atoms to be exchanged and
the triazine ring depends on the nucleophilic character of
the other substituents; this makes it possible to carry out
an industrial one-step process in such a way that no disturbing
yellowish to greenish by-products are formed, e. 9. by coupling
of two stilbenyl groups to one triazinyl group. The cyanuric
chloride is thus usually treated with flavic acid only in the
second stageF219!

The aminocoumarins (24) and (20) can also be acylated
by cyanuric chloride, yielding (145) and (146), respectively.
On exchange of the chlorine atom for a diethylamino group,
the plastic brighteners (247)[2201and (248)[2211are obtained.
3.10. Conjugated Systems Containing s-Triazin-2-yl Groups
Treatment of 4,4'-stilbenedicarbonyl dichloride with benzonitrile and ammonium chloride in odichlorobenzene in
the presence of aluminum chloride gives the bis(triaziny1)derivative (149)12221.This high-melting compound is suitable as
a brightener for polyesters that are to be spun.
The synthesis of dimethoxy(pyreny1)-s-triazine (251 ) proceeds ditrerently: for example, cautious treatment of pyrene
with cyanuric chloride in the presence of aluminum chloride
gives(l50), whose remaining chlorine atoms are finally replaced by methoxy g r o u p ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ] .
4. Conclusion
Optical brighteners are used in four areas: as constituents
in detergents, for whitening paper, for textile finishing, and
for the brightening of plastics and paints. The demands on
a brightener intended to improve the appearance of cotton
and polyamide in the washing process are dictated by the
local washing habits. Brighteners are required that will be
withdrawn from the alkaline wash bath at the boiling point,
at 5O-6O0C, or at room temperature; the brighteners should
be stable to peroxides and often to hypochlorite bleach solutions. Other important characteristics of brighteners used in
washing machines-and the same applies equally to all areas
of application-are naturally also easy availability and thus
a favorable price. These demands are met partly by triazinylflavic acid derivatives of type (244) and partly by triazolylstilbenesulfonic acid derivatives such as (84), (89), or (97)[224!
In the paper industry too, it would no longer be conceivable
to dispense with whiteners. They are either added to the
paper pulp or applied by means of a starch or casein-containing
surface layer. Suitable paper whiteners have proved to be,
here too, triazinylflavicacid derivatives of type (144), particularly those that are unaffected by fillers such as China clay
and are as acid-resistant as possible.
The type of the brightener used in textile finishing varies
with the material to be treated; representatives of all the
classes of compounds discussed above will be encountered.
For brightening cotton, the most important textile fiber,
compounds of type (144) are again used, for improved cotton
the triazolylstilbenedisulfonic acid derivative (98) is particularly suitable. Polyamides are advantageously brightened by
derivatives of 2-pyrazoline containing sulfonic acid, sulfonamide, or alkylsulfonyl groups, by triazinylflavicacid derivatives
of type (144), or by (97). Derivatives of 2-pyrazoline and
bis(benzoxazoly1)thiophene are available to produce whites
on cellulose acetate fibers. These brighteners and also derivatives of naphthalimide, of bis(benzimidazoly1)furanand of coumarin, particularly those containing basic groups, are suitable
for brightening polyacrylonitrile.

In keeping with the importance of polyester fibers a wide
choice of brighteners for this material is a ~ a i l a b l e [ ~Among
them we find stilbene derivatives such as (90), naphthalimide
derivatives such as ( 3 9 ) and (40), as well as coumarin derivatives and numerous brighteners containing benzoxazolyl
Wholly synthetic fibers can also be brightened during the
spinning process, and this is probably the technically most
elegant process. Again among the brighteners applied during
spinning-these must be particularly fast to light and stable
at elevated temperatures-we find representatives of the most
varied types of compounds, namely compounds of type ( 1 4 4 )
(as free sulfonic acids) for brightening polyamide, 2-pyrazoline
derivatives for brightening cellulose acetates, polyamide, or
polyacrylonitrile, and benzoxazolylstilbene, benzoxazolylnaphthalene, and coumarin derivatives such as (94) for brightening polyester fibers. The situation for plastics brighteners is
very similar.
Optical brighteners have been used for about 30 years without any harmful side effects having been reported. Nevertheless, it is only recently that ecological and toxicological doubts
about these products, which are especially easily detected
because of their fluorescence, were disposed of at a scientific
Hearing in Stockholm[z26~.
In this review it has been possible to discuss only a selection
from the chemistry of brighteners. The diversity of classes
of brighteners and the matching of individual products to
industrial requirements have been possible only because of
the great variety of heterocyclic chemistry.

Detection of Fragment Genesis in the Mass Spectrometer:DADI Mass
Spectrometry as an Aid in the Structure Analysis of Organic Compounds
New analytical
By Urs Peter S c h l u n e g g e r [ * l
“Direct Analysis of Daughter Ions” (DADI) can be carried out with commercial mass spectrometers embodying the Nier-Johnson inverse geometry. DADI measurements permit experimental
detection of the consecutive formation of molecule fragments (fragment genesis). Knowledge
of fragment genesis enables the chemist to clarify the fragmentation processes of molecule-ions
and provides information on the structure of fragments formed in the mass spectrometer.
In combination with classical mass spectrometry such information makes it easier to determine
the structure of compounds, to analyze mixtures, to determine the sequence in periodically
constructed molecules, for example oligopeptides, and to study rearrangement reactions occurring
in the mass spectrometer.
1. introduction
Direct Analysis of Daughter Ions (DADI) was first put
forward by Maurer et a!. in May 1971[’]. In November of
that year Bejmon and Cooks published the same method under
the abbreviated name MAIKES (Mass Analyzed Ion Kinetic
Energy Spectrometry)[21.Both designations attempt to characterize the basis of the method, Beynon’s more from the theoretical standpoint. The abbreviation DAD1 seems to be more
readily understood by the practical chemist and will therefore
be used here. Since DADI mass spectrometry is relatively
young and may not be too well known to chemists, its potential

utilization will first be demonstrated for the case of 3-methyl-4phenyl-2-butanone (Fig. 1). The classical mass spectrum (Fig.
2a) of this compound is reproduced as a typical example
in a widely used textbook of organic chemistry[41. In the
discussion of the relationships between structure and mass
spectra the fragment ion at m/e= 147 (M” - 15) is there described as the product of removal of the methyl group u to
thecarbonyl group (Fig. 1 : cleavage site a). O n closer consideration the question arises whether this (M - 15) fragment may
not also arise partially by cleavage of the methyl group from
position 3 (Fig. 1 : cleavage b, P-cleavage relative to the carbony1 group).
Classical mass spectrometry, now used widely as a method
of structure determination in organic compounds, can give
no definite answer in this case, because it is always isolated
