The conformational and tautomeric compositions of malonamide, NH2-C(O)-CH2-C(O)-NH2 were determined by vibrational spectroscopy and theoretical calculations (HF/6-31G*, B3PW91/6-31G*). Solid state Fourier transform infrared and Raman spectra were analysed. They reveal the existence of a diketo tautomer. Theoretical calculations predict a diketo structure(More)
Mass spectra of selected aldehydes and thioaldehydes have been analyzed and specific fragmentation assignments have been done to keto and enol tautomers, although many peaks can be assigned to both forms (i.e. mass spectra are superimposed on one another). The enolization rate for aldehydes is generally favored by the increase in the steric effect caused by(More)
The mass spectral fragmentation of thiosemicarbazones synthesized from acetophenones has been studied by CG/MS. These carbonyl compounds exhibit chromatographic peaks which are not observed in aliphatic analogues or those synthesized from aldehydes. The analysis of the corresponding spectra has allowed structural assignment to the dimerization of gas phase(More)
