Intramolecular electrophilic aromatic substitution in gas-phase fragmentation of protonated N-benzylbenzaldimines.

Abstract

In this study, the gas-phase fragmentations of protonated N-benzylbenzaldimines were investigated by electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS(n)). Upon collisional activation, several characteristic fragment ions are produced and their fragmentation mechanisms are rationalized by electrophilic aromatic substitution accompanied by benzyl… (More)
