We investigated the role of phenolic and phenolic-related traits of the leaves of mountain birch (Betula pubescens ssp. czerepanovii) as determinants of their suitability for the growth of larvae of the geometrid Epirrita autumnata. As parameters of leaf suitability, we determined the contents of total phenolics, gallotannins, soluble and cell-wall-bound(More)
O-Isopropylidene and O-benzylidene acetals of common 2, 6-anhydro-1-deoxy-1-nitroalditols (beta-D-glyco- pyranosylnitromethanes) derived from D-glucose, D-galactose and D-mannose were studied by electron ionization (EI) mass spectrometry. Fragment pathways of the title compounds were studied using accurate mass measurements, collision-induced dissociation,(More)
O-Isopropylidene and O-benzylidene acetals of common 2, 6-anhydro-1-deoxy-1-nitroalditols (beta-D-glycopyranosylnitromethanes) derived from D-glucose, D-galactose and D-mannose were studied by chemical ionization mass spectrometry (CIMS) using methane, isobutane, ammonia or pyridine as reaction gas. Production of [M+H](+) adduct ions dominates in the case(More)
The molecular ions of the title compounds are usually very unstable. The main fragmentation corresponds to the formation of p-MeC(6)H(4)CO(+) as would be expected. Another abundant fragment ion was [M - SO(2)](+) which is formed both from the original sulfone and from the rearranged sulfinate esters. There are, however, three primary ions which can be(More)
